Resisting the Enemy follows the story of Valentine de Vaillant - known as Valli - from a twelve-year-old schoolgirl in Australia to a young woman living in German Occupied France.

From the moment Valli joins a Resistance Group, she engages in a series of clandestine activities that at any moment could lead to arrest by the dreaded Gestapo. When a German Army officer is billeted at her grand-mother's villa, Valli's world is thrown into turmoil. How can she possibly reconcile her growing attraction to a German - a member of a brutal and oppressive regime - with her life as a French patriot and resistant?

Resisting the Enemy is a thrilling story of conflict, danger and passion. A love between enemies that seems impossibly doomed. It moves from the beaches of Australia, to the boulevards of pre-war Paris, through the German invasion and the dark years of the Occupation. It is also about music and opera, the enduring bonds of friendship, and one young woman's fight to resist oppression, no matter what the odds.

About the Author

Lorraine Campbell is a licensed shorthand writer. She worked for seventeen years as a court reporter with the Victoria Government Reporting Service, providing verbatim transcripts of Supreme Court criminal trials and in other jurisdictions. She has also been a freelance court reporter in the Australian Industrial Relations Commission.

She holds an Arts degree from Monash University, majoring in Philosophy and English Literature, and studied French and German for a number of years. Her previous novels are Resisting the Enemy and In Mortal Danger.

A resident of Melbourne’s bayside, Lorraine adores the opera, theatre and movies. She also likes to keep fit and runs every morning along the beach and in the local parks. What she really enjoys doing most is lying on a chaise longue, eating chocolate and reading crime thrillers – or absolutely anything by Alan Furst.
