    1. This is my favourite book of all time The mix of romance, suspence, and mystery creates a story that I will forever go back to again and again.


    2. Brilliant writer Excellent story teller Lots of research led to a believable plot This book was an absolute great stroy I wish all novels were this well put together Character development was fantastic Prose was outstanding a suspense thriller to the end.


    3. I listened to the audio book I was pleasantly surprised This is a wonderful book It s a little hard to get in to at first because it starts off introducing the character you end up hating and it s just a little vulgar to start Once the book introduces it s other characters including Julie you will be hooked The plot is set during WWII and follows the stories of several characters eventually bringing them all together in the end.The writing is wonderful and the narrator was great to listen to It [...]


    4. A 1980 s perspective on WWII delivered via historical fiction Interesting main female character Interesting plot that could translate nicely to film.


    5. Most excellent WW2 thriller several different lives who intersect at this very interesting time in recent European history I m currently intrigued by stories of the French Resistance, especially where ordinary people have become involved and been extraordinarily brave and resourceful, and I loved reading the details of the escape systems for downed airmen I also found the treatment of the Germans quite believeable, they weren t all evil and crazy as they re usually painted I found this book to b [...]


    6. Not a bad book at all, though lacking in any real twists it still kept me entertained until the final ending The baddy got his comeuppance and the goodies lived happily ever after, with the addition that some of it was true ish Not a re reader for sure but enough to tempt me to read another one of CFs books in the near future A fair 4 stars.


    7. c1983 A thoroughly professional wartime adventure Sunday Times Totally agree despite this being a debut novel The characters are well drawn and the pace is excellent FWFTB war, interwoven, Resistance, horror, faith.


    8. I was tempted to give this book five stars, because I am a sucker for well researched historical fiction, but somehow I never lost myself in the process of reading Maybe I ll give a proper review later.




    9. This one s been around a long time published in 1983 A really good read This was Clare Francis first novel I read this a long time, and enjoyed it even this time.


    10. I enjoyed this book almost as much this time as the first time I read it years ago I recommend it to those who enjoy books with a romantic twist set during the German occupation in Europe.


    11. This book was both interesting and informitive It gives the reader a glimpse of occupied France and the undergrond network that saved so many allied pilots.


    12. Another excellent thriller by Clare Francis, this one during WW II High suspense story with a strong female lead character.



    13. He didn t know what was worse living in hope of life or in certainty of death The first character we are introduced to turned out to be so despicable it was maddening especially as the book goes on and considering it was world war II he made you lose hope for anything but thank goodness there were other characters to restore it This book is greatly detailed and any lovers of history out there will definitely love this book.I haven t read a lot of historical fiction books but after reading the Ni [...]



    14. Another Great WW2 StoryBased on true events Wars bring out the best or worse in people as do immoral dictators or leaders Easy to read and hard to put down Enjoy


    15. A good yarn with some heart in your mouth moments Set during the 2nd World War and showing the hardships many endured and the heroism of others Julie s growth and strength through some very traumatic times shone through David s realization that his brilliance mattered less than his being Jewish and his determination that no matter what the Germans were not going to get the knowledge of his invention He would get it to the British if possible Vasson a badly damaged person thrived on the chaos and [...]


    16. This is about a young English woman who goes to France to live with relatives just before the start of WW2 and gets caught up in the resistance movement Very suspenseful with an incredibly dramatic ending Started a bit slowly but once the war is under way, the suspense builds There are actually 3 parallel stories here The main tale is the about the woman mentioned already One of the other stories involves a Jewish scientist working on radar technology while the third story is about a French trai [...]


    17. I read this book in the 1980s and loaned my copy to someone who never returned it In the meantime, I forgot the title and author and spent years and years trying to find it again I finally rediscovered it in 2016 and still consider it one of the best World War II novels I ve ever read I thought the characters of Julie and the German Jewish scientist whose name escapes me at the moment were very well drawn Paul Vasson is probably one of the most despicable characters I ve ever read in a work of f [...]


    18. Sometimes a book comes along that makes you wish you hadn t been so generous with your five stars in the past, this is one of them A really gripping war story, with shades of Neville Chute, Sebastian Faulks others a REALLY good read


    19. I have been wanting to read this for some timeA good WWII thriller Francis does well to interweave the stories of three people across 10 tempestuous years in European history Her characters are very real and I found myself drawn into their lives.





    20. Good WWII novel Conveys the uneasy times Europeans lived in Both my husband and I enjoyed it Very good for a first novel.




    21. A book that will stay with you and a strong female character, Julie So well written One of the better fictional stories written in the times of Word War 11.
