Review by Publisher Summary 1

The year is 1942, and World War II is in full swing. Odette Sansom decides to follow in her war-hero father’s footsteps by becoming an SOE agent to aid Britain and her beloved homeland, France. Five failed attempts and one plane crash later, she finally lands in occupied France to begin her mission. It is here that she meets her commanding officer Captain Peter Churchill.
