Read in September, 2011

There are lots of novels about WWII from lots of viewpoints. I was engrossed with this book because it took the seldom explored viewpoint of the airmen who were shot down in Nazi occupied Europe. During the course of the story you also get the story of a band of French Resistance that fought back by hiding and moving these downed airmen at great risk to themselves. This is a fictional story based on the true events in the life of the authors father-in-law. The ghosts of the main character, Marshall Stone became so real in my mind due to the storytelling talents of this author. I have read a book of short stories by the same author, and was drawn to her first because a lot of her work is about her home and my adopted home, Kentucky. She is a writer who can bring stories to life, and make a sad story such as this enjoyable to read.
