THE PARIS SECRET
Skye Penrose’s mother started teaching her to fly when she was ten so, naturally as England entered into the Second World War, she signed up to fly with the WAAF to ferry new planes to air bases through England. Fluent in French, she was sent into France along with Catherine Dior and Margaux Jourdan just prior to the allied invasion to spy on the Germans and ended up all but forgotten in a horrible place called Ravensbruck.
The best book of the year! Natasha Lester is a master story teller not only describing the horrific conditions women fought in during World War II but also their bravery and courage to change the role of women. This is an extraordinary story that everyone should read! I highly recommend.
