I had credits building up and so took a punt on this book after reading reviews of the hard copy on Amazon. It really was as flukey as that.
Well, this turned out to be a literally unputdownable audiobook, so much so that I listened to it in virtually a single sitting (pausing only for lunch).
Adjectives don't adequately capture the engrossing, page turning nature of this tale which evokes, through the excellent reading of a brilliantly constructed text an almost unbelievably tense and courageous story.
I'm aware that my hyperbole could put potential listeners off, but I hope that it doesn't - courage of the kind described here reminds one of the selfless people who won our liberty and whose existence must be celebrated (spoiler alert - at last!).
I am left, after my marathon listen, informed, exhausted, amazed, saddened, frustrated and exhilarated (oops - those pesky adjectives).
So much given, so little asked.

This is a gripping account of two young, very brave and determined sisters who were prepared to put themselves in danger for our futures and freedom. It always amazes me what these people went through and the tough times, not only from what war brings, but also at the hands of the Nazis.
