In 1940, Varian Fry traveled to Marseille carrying three thousand dollars and a list of imperiled artists and writers he hoped to help escape within a few weeks.
Instead, he stayed more than a year, working to procure false documents, amass emergency funds, and arrange journeys across Spain and Portugal, where the refugees would embark for safer ports. His race against time to save them is a tale of forbidden love, high-stakes adventure, and unimaginable courage. One of The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, and The Observer’s most anticipated books of 2019, from the award-winning novelist of The Invisible Bridge.
