It took this book a while to get rolling, but i'm glad I stuck with it. The story is of a retired pilot who returns to France to the site of his B52 crash during the war. He looks for the people who had helped hide him and get him back to England, and finally about halfway thru the book he finds Annette, the girl in the blue beret, and of course he falls in love with her. She tells him the story of her capture and life in the work camps and prisons--horrible, tragic stuff.
The ending seemed abrupt but after thinking it over, I guess it was an appropriate place to end their story. A really interesting, historically important book based on a true story. Fans of WWII history will especially appreciate it.
