Summary

A heartfelt historical saga from Mary Wood, Proud of You is a gripping novel with a compelling mystery at its heart.

Alice, an upper-class Londoner, is recruited into the Special Operations Executive and sent to Paris, where she meets Gertrude, an ex-prostitute working for the Resistance Movement. Together they discover that they have a connection to the same man, Ralph D'Olivier, and vow to unravel the mystery of his death.

After narrowly escaping capture by the Germans, Alice is lifted out of France and taken to a hospital for wounded officers, where she meets Lil, a working-class Northern girl working as a nurse. Though worlds apart, Alice and Lil form a friendship, and Alice discovers Lil is also linked to Ralph D'Olivier.

Soon the war irrevocably changes each of these women, and they are thrust into a world of heartache and strife beyond anything they have had to endure before. Can they clear Ralph's name and find lasting love and happiness for themselves?

Too many sex scenes.

I was not aware this book would have so many sex scenes. Too difficult to listen too with others in ear shot. Made me feel uncomfortable.
