Nevertheless a good, exciting and uncomplicated fictional story set in a real world background which will give teenage readers an inkling of what the real-life Eliane and her extraordinarily heroic comrades went through, and maybe an inkling of how fortunate they are to be privileged enough to inherit the world they died to save.
The main characters are portrayed with understanding and sympathy, and I would like to know what became of Luke and Christine as their war developed if a sequel were to emerge.
It's a light hearted fast moving yarn about life in occupied France near the end of WWII. Never gets boring.
Unbelievably corny with plastic characters (the pubescent heroine who introduces the concept of a spark plug to 20 hairy bottomed farmers is hilarious) and a predictable plot.
I won't be reading anything else by this authoress, but this book is probably fine for teenagers and people with a lot of time on their hands.

Wasn't one of her better books! Amazed me how the Resistance and Germans trusted these two! Even the ending left you 'wondering' unless theres a follow up to it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mrs. L. Ives
Fantastic book, I love all Hilary Green books as they are historically correct. They make you feel part of the story so you can't put it down!Published 11 months ago by jayne collings
brings back memories for me of stories I was told after the warPublished on 21 Oct. 2014 by Maureen Tipping
This book really was a load of rubbish, totally unbelievable and aimed at young adolescent minds. Not suitable for adults to read and enjoy.Published on 5 May 2014 by A. D. Myerthall
A dry read which was very slow to get going and did not hold my interest - it was not finished!Published on 2 April 2014 by Peter Smith
A charming story. An alternative take on life in France during the war. I would love to know if they ever met again.Published on 15 Mar. 2014 by Mrs L Oakes
I liked this because of its description of WW2 matters of which I was unaware. The characters were likeable, if without depth, and it made an enjoyable read.Published on 5 Mar. 2014 by sylvia maude
