In this story we get a slice of the French resistance during World War II. Marianne is deeply entrenched in spying and subversive acts to try to end the war. We see how women are able to infiltrate and miss lead German officials as well as gather information for counterattacks. These women are sometimes coquettish, sometimes using their feminine wiles but generally just using their hearts to find the strength to fight for what they believe in. We get a few stunning betrayals in this story including some that are quite hard to swallow.
You really can’t go wrong with World War II historical fiction, especially showing the impact of women on the war. I enjoyed the portrayals of Marianne and Christine and the complex network of characters you’re not always sure you can believe. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
