While the France they have known is crumbling around them, two courageous women face danger and betrayal under Hitler's tyranny.
Giselle Munier and Jean Thornton are more like sisters than cousins, having spent many of their summers together, but with the outbreak of World War II, both women's lives take a dramatic turn.
Jean joins the American Red Cross and is assigned to a military hospital in Wales. Meanwhile, Giselle, active in the French Resistance, has been betrayed and arrested by the Nazis. Though her compatriots are able to rescue and hide her, Giselle remains in grave danger because she knows the identity of other Resistance leaders. Jean is determined to try smuggling Giselle to freedom. While the Allies prepare to invade Europe, she makes intricate plans for a parachute jump into occupied France. For such a plan to succeed, however, both women will need to summon superhuman strength and courage.
"Though the story is fiction, readers will learn much about what European women experienced during World War II." (
