Publisher's Summary

On September 1, 1939, the Germans invaded Poland, setting off a rising storm of violence and destruction. This was the start of World War Two. For Anna and Jan Kopernik, the loss is unimaginable. Anna's father is deported to a death camp, and Anna must flee to Belgium where she joins the Resistance.

Meanwhile, Jan escapes with the battered remnants of the Polish army to Britain. When British intelligence asks him to return to Poland on an underground mission to contact the Resistance, Jan seizes the chance to search for his missing wife.

Almost a Great book

I enjoyed this book but the narrator certainly wouldn't be one of my favourites, his accents where way off the mark. That said, the story was good enough to easily forget sme of the vocal irritations.

I was surprised that the story line jumped 4 years, from 1939 to 1943, and at first i diddn't like the idea, there was little mention of the intervening years. However the storyline picked up again and kept me interested right until the end.

If youre interested in war time stories involving the resistance and exploits of the SOE, this is definately worth downloading.

Overall performance

I really enjoyed the story line but the narration I felt was very poor. The voices of the characters did not come across well, they were in distinct and not nearly sharp enough to be convincing
