  1. This book is SO GOOD!

    It pulls you in on page one and keeps you going as you fight, fear, love, and conquer right along with the characters.

    You will be captured and give in to this wonderful telling of WWII happenings.

    And your final release will be when you turn that last page and sigh knowing that what you read was wonderful, and heart-wrenching, and will forever be kept in your mind.

    French Resistance worker Genevieve Olivier and Lieutenant Peter Eddy are on the run. Being captured and then escaping seems to be a way of life for them now.

    Each would love nothing better than to just being together, but Peter is recruited to fight against the Nazis and Genevieve has sought shelter in being a nurse in England.

    Before they can be reunited once again they must both fight against their “sworn enemy.”


  2. Since my dear friend Shauna says that this is good I will have to take a look at it! I think it sounds really intriguing! 😀

    This is the kind of book that takes you on a roller coaster ride and doesn’t stop until the end. It’s well-written and well-researched, and has a little bit of everything. I love a good WWII historical fiction novel and this one is that, in addition to having the added element of being told from an LDS perspective.
