The Girl from Vichy (by Andie Newton)

I enjoyed reading historical fiction books based on WWII. The ones that deal with the resistance are appealing in the way individuals were willing to put their lives on the line to stop the atrocities that were occurring. That being said, I did not connect with the primary character, Adèle. The author, however, should be commended for bringing to light the efforts so many women made as part of the resistance movement. The real-life Mother Superior, Elise Rivet, and Marie-Madeleine Fourcade played a significant role in building a strong force against Hitler’s regime. To be honest, I felt that Adèle was an unbelievable character in that her actions, if they had occurred in real life, would have resulted in her and her cohorts to be arrested early in the book.

Thank you to NetGalley and Aria for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
