Across the Atlantic, across the years from childhood, across the national barriers of war and physical hazards of the high Alps, an American girl searched to find the man she loved.  Her story is one of desperate adventure --

Under Nazi rule on the French side of the Alps, men lived by stubborn courage -- hiding their secret resources of resistance high on the mountain peaks, deep in the crevasses of the glacier.  Fenton had need of that same deep courage when they met her as a stranger in the village.  No one would answer when she asked for Bastineau the brave, the beloved.  No one would help her.  They said the glacier was no place for a girl.

They said Bastineau was dead -- but she knew better.  She read his code message carved in wood at the little inn, carved in ice on the mountain side: "Ci-git mon coeur."  Here lodges my heart.

No Bastineau couldn't die.  He could, perhaps, love another woman?  That she found easier to believe.

The trouble was that others sought Bastineau, sought him for no good but with a show of sympathy for Fenton.  What they all found makes the smashing climax of Kay Boyle's novel of a love that willed to live.
