Book Review

(by- Linda )

Fabulous is the word that comes to mind thinking about this book. Well-researched, intriguing, and informative - a perfect combination. I loved the main character, Drue, an American actress living in Occupied France during WWII. The story follows her life as she works as a radio host and continuously pushes boundaries because she feels compelled to let Americans know what is happening in France. Nothing deters her, even death threats from Hitler. When the radio broadcast shuts down, she begins helping the Resistance.

I found this book engaging from start to finish, highlighting those willing to risk their lives to free their country from the Nazis. Based on a real-life actress - Drue Leyton from Charlie Chan movies - it's a story of love, loss, and forging forward despite hardships. Highly recommend.

Many thanks to NetGalley for providing a complimentary copy of the book; this is my honest opinion.
