    Barely out of school and doing her bit for the British war effort, Marian Sutro has one quality that makes her stand out—she is a native French speaker. It is this that attracts the attention of the SOE, the Special Operations Executive, which trains agents to operate in occupied Europe. Drawn into this strange, secret world at the age of nineteen, she finds herself undergoing commando training, attending a “school for spies,” and ultimately, one autumn night, parachuting into France from an Royal Air Force bomber to join the Wordsmith resistance network.

    Bonny says: "Somewhat tedious"
    "Fantastical Fictional History"

    The main character was amazing. Such a heroine, complex and yet simple.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Anne Hataway would make this story into a fantastic movie as the lead. Is it the Catholic or Protestant spy?
