The Siege of Love
In the year 1870, the city of Paris was under siege. The Prussian army had surrounded the city, cutting off all supplies and communication with the outside world. Despite the hardships and uncertainty, love found a way to blossom in the midst of chaos. Chloe, a young zookeeper, cared for the animals. Her father, a restauranteur, was forced to serve zoo animals. And Max, a spy from Prussia, was sent to Paris to gather intel about the upcoming war.
As the siege finally came to an end and the city was taken over, Chloe and Max were faced with the reality of their situation. Max was a soldier, and Chloe was a zookeeper; they came from different worlds and had different futures ahead of them. But their love was strong, and they knew that they could overcome any obstacle if they had each other.
