I like the unique perspective of a female spy during WWII. It is also attractive that the story is well-balanced between the development of characters and action and adventure. At some point I would like to read this book. Great review!

I like historical fiction and spy novels. One that offers different perspectives of WWII sounds like my type of read. I'm, therefore, looking forward to reading it. Thank you for this wonderful review!

Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres! I try to avoid stories that revolve around Nazi occupation though. Still, this book sounds like it would be entertaining to many readers. It's also a plus that it had few errors. Thanks for the great review!

The historical fiction following an English spy woman working against German's in WWII sounds good. Plus, proper characterization and well-structured plot makes it more appealing. Congratulations on BOTD.

I've seen a couple of novels set in pre-war or post-war times. This is interesting because it's set during the war. Would love to know how the story takes shape.

Post by Nicolene75 »

I am not a fan of historical fiction or books on war, however, in saying that I do think that I might enjoy this one as it focusses more on the characters and not so much on the war itself. Thank you for your informative review.

I am a reader, not because I don't have a life, but because I choose to have many.

This one really does have the sort of espionage intrigue that I'd like to sink my teeth into! The era is fascinatingly adventurous and bittersweet in and of itself, but your review certainly paints it in a way that makes me want to learn more about this brave lady.
