it was amazing

I was really excited to receive a copy of this book, since I had read books about Vera Atkins, Violette Szabo and other S.O.E agents, about Julia and Paul Child's time in the O.S.S., as well as books about events, that happened in France, during WWII. This novel did not disappoint.

From the first chapter, when Catherine and Henri broke into a safe in his French embassy to find codes to help Allies track the German Navy, I was caught up in the story. Both Catherine and Henri are in unhappy marriages and decide to join the S.O.E. to help Henri's native France to overthrow the Nazis. Both Catherine and Henri had to deal with rumors, that Henri was a double agent and actually a spy for the Vichy government, Germany's ally. Although, they were sent on separate missions, Catherine in the South of France and Henri in Paris, they never stopped thinking, if the other was safe. Both go through harrowing adventures, do meet up once and reaffirm their love, only to separate once again and be captured by the enemy. If you want to find out, how their story ends, you will have to read the book!

Not only was this novel well written, with an exciting plot, the author researched, thoroughly, the time period and the actual settings in various parts of France. By adding real personages and events, that happened, Ciji Ware added to the enjoyment of the novel.

I recommend this novel to anyone, who is interested in this time period, and loves spy stories.
