Yes so much yes. That is hard to say without giving things away but I would like to hear what I missed.
Only picking one character is difficult!! But I would love to go for dinner with Julie for reasons better left unsaid for fear of spoilers. I will just leave it as she's an incredibly strong female with opinions and attitude galore.
That narration is amazing. I would listen to anything either of them read.
I could not sleep after reading this book. My heart aches when I hear the tittle mentioned. I feel deeply for the characters, having allowed them refuge in my heart, and I feel shattered knowing that refuge was not enough. The lengths to which one will go for one she loves are unfathomable. There is such love (read honor, loyalty, dedication, trust, obligation, service, and duty) in this book,; it is unlike any I've ever read. Showing the interconnectedness of the human experience, and the fragility of the same, Wein has created a masterwork to be savored as the last peach of summer, the last day of vacation, or when looking back, the last happiness before utter tragedy, the one you might have savored had you known it would be the last.
Too many to count.
I loved this book, my heart continues to ache.
I listen to audiobooks mainly while commuting 90 minutes a day and when walking. Sometimes when knitting.
Historical novel of a young woman pilot and her best friend in WWII. It is nicely done but I struggled a little to finish it.
I purchased this book at a discount. I like WWII novels, so for a few bucks, why not take the plunge.
The book is well written and a good listen. It's sad, but it is also realistically told. The story has a plot device and it can be jolting. The book is told in first person, but then changes persons during the book.
I believe the story could have stood on it's own written in 3rd person so I'm not sure why it was written this way. But if you know about it up front, I think it makes the story easier to digest.
If you like WWII spy novels, then this is a book for you. You should give it a try. The performance is great and the story is well presented and fairly plausible (slightly contrived thus the reduction of 1 star).
It's worth the credit in my opinion.
Really enjoyed listening to this story. The two narrators were both excellent and added to the listening experience. It made me interested to read nonfiction titles on women's roles in WWII.

Connecting with the characters. This was a historical era story, but I had no trouble imagining I was there and right there with them as they experienced what they did.
Any book where a character is hiding the truth within the truth while acting a part under intense duress.
This was my first time, but they were both sensational.
I Told the Truth
Story will stick with me for some time to come.
Intriguing and heart warming
Julie- clever and courageous
Julie- great conversationalist
While listed as a young adult novel, I'm 68 yo and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well written and well read.
