Book Description

The daughters of a French railway engineer are thrown together, with a number of British and French soldiers, in the aftermath and turmoil of events that followed the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940.

Following an emotional and traumatic escape from the advancing German forces they arrive in England. As a result of their experiences, and the manner that they combated the Nazi regime, the three sisters, all civilians, are seconded, along with the survivors of their group, into the intelligence section of General De Gaulle’s newly formed Free French Force.

After extensive training in England they return to occupied France living in fear of betrayal and capture.

In an action packed series of daring exploits, the three girls and their group follow a ruthless and dangerous path involving theft, sabotage and assassination as they fight against the German occupation and become involved in merciless combat operations which assist the Allied advances in Normandy as they seek further revenge against the German officer responsible for the massacre of French civilians.

The story concludes with a surprise visitor to meet the group a number of years after the end of the war.

5* Review: I bought this book last week and read it in three sessions. This is not my normal genre and I am so pleased I decided to think outside the box with my reading. The story about World War Two made me think pretty deeply and the storyline kept me wanting more.

I will not go into much detail here as I do feel that this book deserves to be read and I look forward to other books from this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Janet + John or 'allo 'allo? 4 May 2014
By Wotan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An entertaining read but not French Resistance. The story is too 'cosy'. There is no hardship, no adrenaline rush, no tension. It is too far-fetched. C.D.G. would not have paid such minute attention to a group like this. When the war was over he barely acknowledge them (according to some reports). The danger is sadly lacking. It is more 'allo 'allo than Maquis. Passes the time though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard Work ! 27 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the story very mundane, there were no really exciting bits, and it was all too easy to put the book down. I think this was due to the fact that, although the title gave the impression of three main characters, in fact there were about eight or nine, none of which one could have any particular empathy with.

Having spent some time in this area of France and liking war stories this book gave me both of these things in abundance. It is well written for a first novel and I hope the author will have a second one on the shelves in the not to distant future. Well done Mr Sinkinson

3.0 out of 5 stars Frenchman,s. Slaughtered 15 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Exciting but improbable tale with unnecessary explicit sexual content. Wartime A.Team! A disappointment because of too many impossible co-incidental happenings

2.0 out of 5 stars slightly disappointing 9 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did not like the literary style. Read a bit like an Enid Blyton Famous Five romp. All a bit too jolly hockey sticks and " are there buns for tea" . However good story in principal and author showed good knowledge of France.
