    Story
    (86)

    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"
    "Trapeze is a pleasant mix of history and fiction."

    I enjoyed the fact that the romance did not overshadow the rest of the story.

    In the heart of China's Sichuan province, amid the terraced hills of the Yangtze River valley, lies the remote town of Fuling. Like many other small cities in this ever-evolving country, Fuling is heading down a new path of change and growth, which came into remarkably sharp focus when Peter Hessler arrived as a Peace Corps volunteer, marking the first time in more than half a century that the city had an American resident.

    Ravenmaster says: "Peter Berkrot Again?"
    "Fascinating account!"

    I enjoyed the descriptions of the people and the culture from the perspective of an American living several years in China.
