This is a fictional history based on a female network of spies during World War One. It is amazing! In it, we encounter a former WWI spy and fellow female spies working against the Germans in occupied France.
The novel also includes a young girl who is searching for her beloved cousin who went missing after World War Two. This character ties the two time frames together by her association with a broken down former spy who aids her in the search. While doing so, her history as a spy unfolds.
So many horrible things happened during both wars. This story, based on actual people and events, really drives the point home. I learned many new facts about the War to End All Wars. I highly recommend this book. It’s one I will never forget. This phenomenal novel is being made into a film. I’ll be watching for it.
