This is just a great read, just what you'd expect from Follett. You wonder how the gals can beat the Gestapo, seems the odds are all stacked against them.... Read Pillars of thr Earth, too. It's one of the best I ever read!

I loved this book! Ken Follett never disappoints me, but here, he really stirs the imagination as he follow 6 British women undercover agents working in France just days before the D-Day invation. His images of World War II are so vividly drawn that you can almost picture yourself there. This gives one a great appreciation of the dangers faced by the French underground.

This is the fictionalized story of the Jackdaws-50 women sent into France as secret agents by the OSE during WWII. Please note the Jackdaws were real. I especially liked the tag from the Official History account of Pearl Witherington. She was recommended for a Military Cross but it was downgraded to a lesser civil medal. She turned it down claiming she had done nothing civil!

This was a GREAT book; full of intrigue and suspense. I love strong women and this was right up my alley. One that keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire way through... a real page turner. I enjoyed the concept as well. I like all of Follett's WWII spy novels, but this was one of the best.

Another excellent historical fiction from Ken Follett. The characters are memorable and you start to care about them...especially the villain, who starts as the all inclusive Nazi bad-guy, but is fleshed out to make him more human, with his own problems, loves, and reasons.

Ken Follett is so good at writing a book that reaches out and grabs you for an exciting ride until the last page. This book is no different. I really enjoyed this book and reading more about the war effort on the part of the females.

If you loved this book like I did, be sure to read Susan Elia MacNeal's stories about WWII, starting with MR. CHURCHILL'S SECRETARY.
