April's topic is Female Spies. It was pretty hard to find books on this topic, so if you have read a good book about a female spy, be sure to add it under April book suggestion. I hope you all enjoy this months books!

Kathryn | 1 comments I'm actually writing a children's non-fiction book that will feature several WWII-era female spies . . . but it won't be published until next March!:)

A very engrossing book that is difficult to find in the US is the biography of Nancy Grace Auugsta Wake by an Australian author (Peter Fitzsimons, I think -- I've temporarily lost my bibliography page). If anyone in this group is from the UK, it should be easy enough to obtain a copy, but you hail from the US, like me, you'll have to request it from an inter-library loan and eventually get it from a college university! Wake has a very compelling story and her biographer is a fantastic writer. She's apparently still alive in a British nursing home.

A gentler soul, but just as engrossing is Noor Inayat Khan and her biography is called "Spy Princess." It's also a great read.

Sorry, Marcie: I just realized I wrote these suggestions in the wrong place.

No worries Kathryn, great suggestions. Congratulations on your book. Keep me updated.
