The characters were very credible and help dispel the general image of the French people after German occupation during World War Two. The network of priests assisting the resistance was a surprise. The story told of the human failings along with the good and bad on both sides of the conflict. I truly enjoyed the read and commend it to all who enjoy history in story form.
A beautifully written story so vividly told it may well have been true. This is a story of courage and trust but also of suspicion and cowardice. The village of Caillon is a microcosm of occupied France. But her occupiers are not all they seem either. This book was an emotional read, but most definitely worth the time.
