Two crosses. One belonging to a missionary's daughter sent to a college program in France by a rich philanthropist, and the other in the possession of a young girl running for her life. Little do the two of them know that the cross is the symbol of a organization trying to rescue a targeted group out of Algeria during the Algerian war for independence from France.
Set in 1961, this is an excellent suspense novel about a war that isn't talked about as much. It is more than just a classic tale of good versus evil, but a story of grieving, redemption, and forgiveness. Not only is the story wonderful, but I found the characters incredibly real.
