I am a huge fan of books about WWII as well as those written with a dual timeline. This one fit the bill! I really enjoyed getting to know Valerie and the supporting characters. They were so well developed and in discovering the history of Valerie’s mother and the Nazi occupation was done well. This was an emotional read but there were also moments of joy amidst the angst of the way people were treated during the invasion. The reader gets a glimpse of how far some individuals were willing to go to make a difference and hasten the defeat of Hitler’s regime.
I cannot wait to read another book by this author. I love her writing style and ability to pull me into the story. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookoutre for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
