    When Grace married Captain Leo Waterhouse in Australia in 1943, they were young, in love - and at war. Like many other young men and women, they were ready, willing and able to put the war effort first. They never seriously doubted that they would come through unscathed. But Leo never returned from a commando mission masterminded by his own hero figure, an eccentric and charismatic man who inspired total loyalty from those under his command.

    Jan says: "Summary misleading."
    "Based on a true episode"

    What did you love best about The Widow and Her Hero?

    It was a insight to an episode in Australian War history from a woman's point of view.


    What other book might you compare The Widow and Her Hero to and why?

    Nancy Wake's story was a thriller as well.


    What does Beverley Dunn and David Tredinnick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Beverley Dunn has a way with her involvment in the text. You feel that you are there with her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end, Beverley was speaking slowly and drawing out every word.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this audio book, well written, it gave Beverley Dunn and David Tredinnick a difficult task but a memorable one.
