    "Wow! What a powerful and beautifully written book!"

    I bought this book based on the narrator, John McDonough as he is my all-time favorite narrator. I was not disappointed with the book. It was wonderful! Both John M and the female narrator were excellent. The production was smooth and their pronunciation of some very difficult French and German words was effortless. Powerful story about a baby girl who was born out of wedlock to a Polish princess. Due to a heart defect, she was not expected to live. In spite of the illness, her grandmother placed her in a convent in France to be cared for by a governess. The heart defect 'healed of its own accord' and Amandine grew into a very elegant child. The first of the book is a little hard to get into but don't dispare! It gets better and better as you go along. Great historical fiction about the Nazi occupation of France from 1941 - 1945. The book ended much as I had expected (I still have a lump in my throat.) This story will stay with me for a long time.
