    I was looking forward to this, Fiona s latest novel, and was not disappointed Wonderful storylines threaded together, linking Paris during the Second World War with modern day The characters develop beautifully, and though this could be read as a stand alone book, it was great to read of the story of Mireille, one of the main characters in other novels by this author I loved this and would recommend it to anyone who loves to read a ready well written book.

    Fiona Valpy writes very powerfully about a terrible time in European history The story is about a young woman trying to find out about her mother and her mother s family She finds out that her mother was far from the weak person that she orignially thought she was It shows how friendship really strong friendship can overcome ANYTHING How that belief can keep one going and going and going It is written with great compassion and a true understanding of how war can change how people act towards each other A fantastic read.

    Quite the most remarkable book I have ever read The title of the book hides the lives of three very brave and wonderful women fighting secretly within the resistance during WWII The story is harrowing at times but what went on, very many others suffered too The story is emotional, if you don t cry with their pain and also with their courage and love, I would be surprised I have tears for all who had to bear the incredible hardships and inhumanity caused by the power of one man Thank goodness for those brave enough to resist and for the final outcome of the war with Victory over Europe and for Churchill being such an inspirational leader to help save us from a fate worse than death These three women in the story were just three of very many who worked for our freedom that we have today I cannot recommend this book highly as it s worthy of than five stars Congratulations to Fiona Valpy for putting together such an incredibly well written book.
