In 1921, Françoise Frenkel a Jewish woman from Poland opens Berlin's very first French bookshop. It is a dream come true. The bookshop attracts artists and diplomats, celebrities and poets. It brings Françoise peace, friendship and prosperity. Then one summer's day in 1939 Berlin's Jewish shops and businesses are smashed to pieces. The dream ends, and Françoise's desperate, headlong flight from Nazi persecution begins.

Unfolding in Berlin, Paris and against the romantic landscapes of southern France, No Place to Lay One's Head is a heartbreaking tale of human cruelty and unending kindness; of a woman whose lust for life refuses to leave her, even in her darkest hours, and who survives only because strangers risk their lives to protect her.
