The Mark of the Angel (Compact Disc)
The year is 1957, and the place is Paris, where the psychic wounds of World War II have barely begun to heal. Saffie, a young German woman, becomes maid, then wife to Raphael, a privileged French musician who finds her remoteness provocative and irresistible. One day in the old Jewish quarter of the city, where she has taken Raphael's flute to be repaired, Saffie meets a Hungarian instrument maker and all their lives are unexpectedly, dramatically altered.
