In 1942, in the village of Champlost, France, ten-year-old Muguette Szpajzer finds solace from the war. As her mother risks living in a Paris swarming with Nazis, the mayor of Champlost rips up letters of denunciation and the priest gives Muguette a new Catholic name, Marie. Sheltered by the kindness of the townspeople, Muguette delights in her new surroundings, filling her days by learning to ride a bike, recite catechism and adapt to rural life. Written in vignettes with child-like charm and innocence, Where Courage Lives provides rich insight into life in a small village against the backdrop of the war, paying tribute to both Muguette's indomitable mother and the courage of the people of Champlost.
