4.0 out of 5 stars Opposing Occupiers ... and Trying to Survive to Tell the Story, 5 Oct. 2012
This review is from: The Resistance (Louis Morgon Thrillers) (Hardcover)
"Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy." -- Psalm 82:3 (NKJV)

This story may not be what you expect. It opens as Louis Morgon is ousted from the CIA. He goes into a downward spiral ... only to recover by moving to rural France. In Morgon's new home, he finds some unexpected materials. Fascinated, Morgon enlists help from Renard, a French policeman, to learn more.

From there, the story moves into the past, telling the story of how the village had coped with being occupied by Germans during World War II. The events develop in ways that present ambiguities that aren't explained until the story's end. So there are mysteries here for the reader, in addition to mysteries for Morgon.

It's an entertaining story that will lift you with its hopefulness.

I thought the story had a drawback in that the plot was developed a bit too neatly. As such, there's an element of a fairy tale feeling ... rather than of utter realism.

The story's great strength is that it captures the perspective well of what it's like to be occupied by an enemy nation.
