Publisher's summary

England, 1947: A young woman finds herself under close observation in an insane asylum, charged with a violent crime she has no memory of committing. As she tries to make sense of her recent past, she recalls very little.

But she still remembers wartime in Yugoslavia. There she and her lover risked everything to carry out dangerous work resisting the Germans - a heroic campaign in which many brave comrades were lost. After that, the trail disappears into confusion. How did she come to be trapped in a living nightmare?

As she struggles to piece together the missing years of her life, she will have to confront the harrowing experiences of her special-operations work and peacetime marriage. Only then can she hope to regain the vital memories that will uncover the truth: is she really a violent criminal…or was she betrayed?

Excellent

Loved it! This poor woman who works so hard to always do the right thing is theater at every turn. This is a gripping story of obvious sanity and compassion labeled as insanity.

Fabulous!

Well written story about a young woman during WWII. Her story of helping partisans in Slovenia and her return to England is compelling, exciting and heartbreaking. Her redemption in the end is reassuring. Highly recommended!

Such a riveting wartime romance

Wow! This book was so well written and performed. It brought me to understand each character and learn some wartime experiences for people behind the lines.

Uncovering the mystery, but slowly.

It was good overall, but very slow. Took awhile to get interested but was good. Ending was “eh”

Good read

Kept u guessing. I had stopped reading for a few days. when I went back I somehow started reading a few chapters forward and couldn't believe how the plot had changed drastically, for the good. normally I would have just been angry with myself, and gone on to another book. I went back, found out where I really was in the book, and finished it.
Narrator was good. S he made u feel u were right there with the characters. she painted a good picture.

I just couldn't get into it.

Not sure why but this story didn't grab me. I think I didn't like Robert. Not sure why. Maybe you'll find it to your liking?

Keep listening/reading!

Like others have mentioned- it really is a slow start. About mid book it really touches your heart and few deeply for the main character. Worth it to get to the end!

Felt a bit muddled

The first part of this book sounded like it was being read in a box or something. Very tinny. And honestly, the narration for most of it was on the verge of sleepy. There were a couple of parts where the narration picked up to suit the part of the story that was being told. I almost returned this several times, but thought it may get better so kept pushing through. It's a shame,also, because the premise is interesting, and not one I have read before in my WW2 readings. So, I will give it that as a plus.

Interesting peak into a sad part of history

It took me a while to get into this book, but once I did the story was captivating and interesting. I know little about Yugoslavia area and found myself doing more reading into the history of what happened there during WWII. By the end, your heart aches for the main character and all she went through. Glad to get a peak into things that went on during that time.
