After they came to the States, the children were repeatedly reminded that they were born in Quebec City, Canada and not in France. War tears a village apart--and spurs one young man to seek justice--in Bob Aubin's epic paperback novel, A Place Called Lucat.When World War II takes ahold of Lucat, France, aristocrat Henri Dubois seizes upon an opportunity. Turning in his Jewish neighbors to the French police, he makes a fortune selling the possessions they are forced to leave behind.But soon the situation becomes too volatile, the war ends, and Henri flees with his family to Canada and later to the United States. After his unexpected death, however, the code needed to access the safety deposit box in which the profits from the stolen goods resided is lost, and his family is left destitute.All the while, Sigman, the lone survivor of the devastated Lucat village, vows to reclaim the assets that once belonged to those he knew and loved. His struggle to reconcile the past with the present, as well as his desire to achieve justice for all those who were lost, fuels him across generations--and the globe--to confront the Dubois family once and for all.
