Parigi, 1930. Romaine Duchamps si ritrova da sola in una stanza, con il padre morente riverso sul pavimento, e le mani sporche del suo sangue. Non ha idea di cosa sia successo. Saranno le bugie della sorella gemella Florence, poco dopo, a salvarla dalle accuse e dalla ghigliottina. Otto anni più tardi, Romaine, passionale e irrequieta, vive una vita di viaggi e amori tra le spiagge mediterranee della Spagna e il freddo Atlantico, in un'Europa sempre più scossa dai venti di guerra. Seguendo una delle sue molte passioni, diventa aviatrice, decisa a usare l'abilità di pilotare gli aerei per consegnare pacchi e viveri quando le bombe cominciano a cadere. La sorella, dal canto suo, è rimasta a Parigi, dove ha sposato un potente politico. Due donne completamente diverse, legate non solo dal sangue, ma anche dal segreto di quello che è successo anni prima in quella stanza... E quando la guerra minaccerà di portare via ciò che hanno di più caro, entrambe dovranno trarre forza dal segreto che le unisce, e trovare il coraggio di ascoltare il legame del sangue per cercare finalmente la verità.
