Pam You accomplished exactly what you set out to do. Thank you. This is truly one, if not the best book I have ever read.


Deitra Compelling read, love the characters!!!! I love when you write historical fiction. This is right up there along with Winter Garden, my favorite of yours.

Christine Hendershot I could not stop reading! I stayed up until 2 am last night to finish, and I can't stop thinking about this tragic and triumphant story! The writing is superb! The characters jump off the page and into your heart. I was completely lost in the story. A book like this is why reading is one of my greatest pleasures. Thank you, Kristen, for a compelling and moving story and for honoring those brave women!

Tina Enjoyed this immensely! My first from Kristin Hannah. I love that historical fiction can engage, teach and open up my perspective. Though I'm left wanting to follow the trail of research you used to create the heroines, I'm afraid I'd have to start a PhD program to answer all my questions! So, maybe you could tell us about the 19 year old Belgian woman that created the escape route and her similarities to Isabelle.

Joyce Hancock Boy, did you accomplish what you set out to do. This book was fantastic. Very moving and heart-felt. I so enjoyed reading it and was thrilled to learn something about history at the same time. Good job with this one.
