Nothing bad can happen at the Ritz. Until June 1940, when the German army sweeps into Paris, setting up headquarters at the Ritz. Blanche and Claude Auzello must navigate a terrifying new reality. One that entails even more secrets. One that may destroy the tempestuous marriage between a beautiful, reckless American and her very proper Frenchman. But one secret is shared between Blanche and Claude alone - the secret that, in the end, threatens to imperil both of their lives, and to bring down the legendary Ritz itself. Based on true events.
