    Diane – wasn’t Nancy Wake’s story just incredible?! I found a copy of this in my local second hand book shop and while I wasn’t too keen on the biographers style, I was blown away by her bravery and approach to life. So pleased to see you have read it and loved it too.

    And The Paris Wife would definitely feature in my favourite book list for last year if I had got round to writing one – I must get to read something by Hemingway this year.

    Happy New Year to you – here’s to a wonderful year of reading!
