    "Kinda good..."

    This started slow, and I found the 'headhopping' a bit irritating. The author switches scenes with not nearly enough notification. So one moment your in france, the next moment you are Britain. After the first hour the story picks up... But I ended up being disappointed at how the tale ended. I knocked off a star for the ending.

    "Excellent Story"

    This book is an exciting and fast moving snapshot of WWII right after the invasion. It is historically accurate and weaves a fast moving plot with a love story that spans Europe and Great Britian. I believe anyone looking to be entertained will like this book especially those who like the WWII time period. The narration is also excellent.
