Why this book?
As with so many other readers, I loved this story of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by their dreams and beliefs and circumstances, who are forced to fight for love and freedom and simple survival in German-occupied, war-torn France.
Having lived in France for 35+ years and having written a novel that included much about the French Resistance in WWII, I especially loved learning more about the women’s roles in the Resistance. I also loved the mystery of the present day plotline. All very inspiring as I considered writing a dual-time story.
