recommendation This book is BRILLIANT! It’s a YA novel but easily readable by adults. Set in WW2, it tells the story of two women linked by adventure and tragedy and is a vivid account of life under occupation and the horror of the Nazi regime. Everyone should read it.

recommendation Oh, my heart. I read this in 2 sittings, because I had to know how the story ended for these girls. And though this one is a novel, it's put me in mind and awe of the *real* women of SOE, and of the WAAF, and of the ATA, and how many of those stories have been lost in the night and fog. This novel was harrowing, and beautiful, and spunky and funny and brave. (review by Gaby)
