I enjoyed it for its subject matter and its forthright style. The story of how an Australian woman living in France came to be an active resistence worker in WWII. The style is very brisk and blunt - it resonates as if a strightforward person were telling you about their experiences directly with no litrary artifacts. nancy becomes a real person to the reader very fast and her matter of fact way of dealing with the story is bracing.

I give it less than four stars only because this style of writing grates upon me after too long, if I were rating the story without the style it would be four stars.
