Brilliantly written story of a young girl fighting for the Polish resistance. Macinnes has the ability to make the reader think they are part of the action, and share the emotions of the heroin as she avoids capture and takes the fight to the Nazis.

I read this first in the 1970's and enjoyed it then, but now find it rather dated and wooden.

One of Her Best 2 Jun. 2013
By Tom S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the story of Sheila Matthews, a brave young Englishwoman in Warsaw at the start of the 1939 German occupation of Poland. The Nazis have turned the entire country into a police state, and all British and other foreign citizens have gone home--except Sheila. It seems she's a dead ringer for a missing heroine of the Polish Underground, and...well, see for yourself. Her adventures with the resistance fighters--and a dash of romance--make this a compelling and exciting read from start to finish.

Helen MacInnes was one of the leading writers of espionage stories from her first novel (1941's Above Suspicion) to her last (1984's Ride a Pale Horse). She wrote 21 bestsellers, and she died in 1985. Her books have been out of print for years, but now they're all being republished in paperback and ebook forms. I've been a fan of her thrillers since I was a teen back in the 1970s, and I hope new generations discover these books and enjoy them as much as I did. WHILE STILL WE LIVE is one of her best, but they're all very good. Highly recommended.

Her Best Novel 1 Dec. 2013
By Anne Craven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Of all Ms. MacInnes's books, this one is my favorite. The premise of the book is man's courage and his quest for freedom from the madness that was, and still is, the Holocaust, the desire of one country to rule, by force, those around them. The desire for freedom can't be smothered. It may lie dormant, but will always fight its way back in the spirit of people who refuse to give in.

Read if you are interested in WWII! 9 Sept. 2013

Articulate and sensitive 20 May 2015
By Do not publish - no further reviews coming from me. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Helen MacInnes was a highly articulate and sensitive author , writing primarily about the decades through which she lived. Her writing reflects careful research and includes beautifully drawn characters, and a more romantic than gritty approach to dreadful international European situations and dangers. Her descriptive skills, keen observations of people, picture of a life style and culture totally destroy by the War, and implied currents of greater risks than those depicted make this a great read even today, decades after its original publication. Her skill, finesse, and depth of research are rare in contemporary novels.

Still a wonderful read 27 April 2015
By Vicki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this more than 30 years ago and now have a renewed interest in stories of WWII. This one holds up to modern standards. The story line is good, the descriptions of the German invasion of Poland and life during that time is vivid with a strong reflection of emotions during that time. I am certain that events written probably did happen in whole or in part many times during the war. It is well written with lots of imagery I could see and feel. I am now going back to all of her books to reread them.
