Groot's latest release is set to coincidewith D-Day, June 6. Based on real people and events, it is clearly historically accurate and well researched, but the large cast of characters makes it hard to track at times and slows the pace for the first part of the book.

SUMMARY: American pilot Tom Jaeger is shot down in Normandy and taken in by the Resistance. He becomes a key part in their plan to get information on the Germans and their plans for the Caen Canal Bridge. Brigitte Durand, a prostitute at a Germans-only brothel, passes on information to Tom, since she wants to help the Allies. Their window of opportunity is closing, as the invasion looms. ls the Resistance being foolhardy by placing their faith in a pilot and a prostitute?--Romantic Times

Set during World War II in occupied France just months before the Allied invasion, this historical novel revolves around a downed American pilot, a French prostitute, a French resistance leader, and a German major. The four years of occupation have been harsh on the French, and survival comes at a high cost. Can the core characters' souls find the right path to freedom even if their physical bodies die? Reader Carine Montbertrand does an excellent job with the multitude of accents including French, German, Dutch, and American, but the subject matter of torture and abuse does not sit easily on her light, youthful voice. Readers should be aware that while this novel has inspirational aspects, it also includes brutal scenes of violence. VERDICT Overall, this is recommended for fiction collections especially where inspirational fiction is popular.-J. Sara Paulk, Wythe-Grayson Regional Lib., Independence, VA (c) Copyright 2013.
