A WWII Novel
by Jenny Lecoat
First, the cover of this book is just gorgeous. It draws the reader in to the world of those living on the Channel Islands. Not all readers may know that the region was occupied by the Germans during WWII. It is shocking to think of as the Germans were so close to England. It is a fascinating period and location for an historical novel .
I have written many times about the plethora of WWII novels. Yes, here is another one but don’t let WWII fiction fatigue keep you from giving this one a read. The story of a Jewish girl and a German soldier is well told and engaging. Readers will hope for good things for protagonist Hedy who left Vienna only to be equally at risk in her new home. She hides in plains sight as a translator for the Germans; what courage she shows! Find out more about her story!
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
