Not one, but two, female protagonists? Espionage? WWI and WWII? An endearing male character who not only sweeps one of the main character’s off her feet, but the readers too? YES, PLEASE!! This book has it all and I flew through the 500 pages like it was my job!
Alternating between two time periods (WWI and the end of WWII), two separate tales become intertwined as they build towards an exciting, unexpected, and redemptive ending. I found myself engaged in each of the protagonists stories – (although if forced to choose, I’d say Evelyn’s story of espionage kept me flying through the pages).
Drawing from actual historical events, Kate Quinn masterfully delivers a book that will definitely top my list of favorites this year! I loved the strong female characters that continually demonstrated bravery, resilience, and independence. I think fans of The Lilac Girls and The Nightingale will equally love this one!
