The daughters of a French railway engineer are thrown together, with a number of British and French soldiers, in the aftermath and turmoil of events that followed the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940.

Following an emotional and traumatic escape from the advancing German forces they arrive in England. As a result of their experiences, and the manner that they combated the Nazi regime, the three sisters, all civilians, are seconded, along with the survivors of their group, into the intelligence section of General De Gaulle’s newly formed Free French Force.

After extensive training in England they return to occupied France living in fear of betrayal and capture.

In an action packed series of daring exploits, the three girls and their group follow a ruthless and dangerous path involving theft, sabotage and assassination as they fight against the German occupation and become involved in merciless combat operations which assist the Allied advances in Normandy as they seek further revenge against the German officer responsible for the massacre of French civilians.

The story concludes with a surprise visitor to meet the group a number of years after the end of the war.

5* Review: I bought this book last week and read it in three sessions. This is not my normal genre and I am so pleased I decided to think outside the box with my reading. The story about World War Two made me think pretty deeply and the storyline kept me wanting more.

I will not go into much detail here as I do feel that this book deserves to be read and I look forward to other books from this author.
