Read in January, 1980

When Sheila, somewhat naively, accepts an invitation to visit Polish acquaintances in the countryside not far from Warsaw in the summer of 1939, she is oblivious to the fact that war is about to break out all over Europe. Suddenly, it is too late to return to England, and Sheila belatedly realizes she is in danger. However, learning for the first time that her father died in Poland makes Sheila realize she too would like to work toward Poland's freedom. When she is mistaken for a German spy, suddenly there is an opportunity for her to work for the country she has learned to love against the Germans...

Jan Thanks for the suggestion! I know I have read Helen MacInnes before, but I forgot about her. Now I will enjoy reading or rereading her!
