I really enjoyed this book fro. beginning to end. the narration was impeccable. It got a tiny bit technical at times and I zoned out a little, but all in all that added to the book. I learned a ton!
Having bought this novel during a sale, it really wouldn't need to be all that good to meet my expectations. I was quite happily surprised when I became engrossed in this tale. Although I deplore war, I find it inspirational to read about the heroism it brings about. Often such stories revolve around men. This story is a departure from the norm, even from the usual female nurses and ambulance drivers. The main characters are a British spy and a civilian pilot, who met and became best friends when both were in the WAAF. While the plot of this novel derives from their exploits, the theme is about their friendsship I highly recommend this audiobook!
initially I thought the book was very slow but once I got into it I couldn't stop. An amazing perspective of women in that generation and all that they endured. and how much they wanted to help fight the war.
The book starts out slow, but keep going for a tale that will immerse you into the realities of life during the war. You will emerge on the other end knowing what truth really men's.
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
This just became a favorite of mine. Written with great heart, poetry, wonderful, fully-realized characters "Verity" goes to great lengths to set the reader as deeply into the time and place (England and France, WW2) of this story as possible. This tale of deep friendship between two heroic women rang so true that I was sure they had rubbed elbows with the likes of Nancy Wake etc. Really a brilliant novel.
