In 1943, a British fighter plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France and the survivor tells a tale of friendship, war, espionage, and great courage as she relates what she must to survive while keeping secret all that she can.
What was tough about it was that the early part of the book rambled quite a bit. If it hadn't been a book club book, I'm not entirely sure that I would have kept at it as diligently, though it was definitely good enough to keep reading. As you read the story, though, it becomes clear just *why* the story is rambling, and that becomes easier to get through.
And then, when you wonder what else could possibly fill the rest of the book, the second half hits. Wow. It picked up quite a bit from there. So, great book, great women characters, learned a lot, but got off to a slow-ish start. I can live with that.
