French term or phrase: tapis dans l'ombre
Desconheço esta expressão e está a causar-me muitas dificuldades na tradução da seguinte frase. Alguém que me possa ajudar a decifrá-la? (vou colocar em PT o que já traduzi (o livro é tão grande que não sei onde se encontra a frase original)

"Muito devagarinho, as coisas estavam a mudar. (...) Mas era ainda o facto de pessoas que trabalhavam por amor, os frustrados ainda não se encontravam aí, ou pelo menos não tinham direito de cidadania, *TAPIS DANS L’OMBRE ILS SE PRÉPARAIENT*!"

Tem alguma coisa a ver com preparar as coisas "às escondidas"?
