I adored this book. The writing is exquisite. The story is intricate, personal and moving. This is such a different kind of World War II story, told in a compelling and beautiful way. She weaves the story of two young women thrown together by their roles in the war effort for the Allies. One is a trained spy and the other is a gifted pilot. Their friendship and courage is at the center of this story. I felt so connected that I shared their triumph, joy and heartache like I was right there with them. I found myself thinking about the war and all the amazing acts of bravery small and large that people performed. This is such an astounding and important book. I look forward to rereading it and adding it to my list of all-time favorite novels.
