Summary

From the best-selling author of The Gunner Girl - how far will two women go to survive WWII?

Having suffered a traumatic experience in the Blitz, Edie feels utterly disillusioned with life in wartime London. The chance to work with the Secret Operations Executive (SOE) helping the resistance in Paris offers a fresh start. Codenamed ‘Yvette’, she’s parachuted into France and met by the two other members of her SOE cell. Whom can she trust? 

Back in London, Vera desperately needs to be made a UK citizen to erase the secrets of her past. Working at the foreign office in charge of agents presents an opportunity for blackmail. But when she loses contact with one agent in the field, codenamed Yvette, her loyalties are torn. 

This unabridged audio version is read by Charlotte Strevens.

Enjoyable book

I enjoyed listening to this book, the story is quite similar too Code Name Lise, but it's still a good book in it's own right. I felt at time the story rambled a bit and deviated into the characters dreams, some of which seemed irrelevant to the story. The narration was very good and I'm glad i got this book, and am now listening to another book from this author.

Lovely war time story which I really enjoyed.
Loved all the little pieces of information which someone of my age wouldn’t know about.
Loved the narration, that made the story come to life.
