really liked it
Read in June, 2009

Perhaps, using a lot of " Carve her name with Pride " annotation in the storyline.
However, as masterfully written as other Faulks books. The book does
transport you straight into German Occupied France of WW2.
The omnipresent peril into which the herione has been placed is
vividly conveyed, and leaves the reader agitated for her continued

As the story progresses, the brutal reality of reprisals against
Allied espionage activity against the German war effort in France,
emphatically captures the gravity of the undertaking into which
Charlotte has become immersed.

I really enjoyed the book, it takes you just so much farther than
any film ever can.
Even when the film heroine is played by an actress of the stature of
Cate Blanchett .
I am a fan of Sebastian Faulks writng without question. I only
wish my own could come anywhere near approaching his standards.
I'll keep trying....
