Fearless Heart by Dawn Knox

Although this is a feel good romance with an upbeat ending the story shows a lot of evidence of careful research by the writer. This is another novel that shows women playing a very active role in war time activities. Here we have details of:

SOE (Special Operations Executive)

The Resistance

How undercover workers were got into and out of France

How people reported in

How the BBC helped convey “personal” messages

What life was like for French civilians?

How the occupying forces operated

The type of war work women could do  

Hunger and deprivation

It is also extremely well written.
