Night Train to Lisbon (Large Print) : Europe, 1936. As the clouds of war darken the continent, a wide-eyed young American girl embarks on her first trip abroad - and indelible journey that will take her to legendary capitals and into the arms of a dashing, dangerous stranger. . . On an overnight train to Lisbon, Carson Weatherell meets good-looking, wry, young British scientist Alexander "Alec" Breve - a fateful encounter that sparks a passion as intense as it is instant. Yet Carson's joy is to be short-lived. The starry-eyed American hears a shocking revelation from an uncle in British intelligence: her lover is a spy for Germany. Putting loyalty to country above the pain of her own heart, Carson agrees to spy on Alec.
