the time is 1944 and Henry Forester is the youngest pilot in his Air Force Squadron. He is shot down behind enemy lines and is helped by the French Resistance. Gripping, suspenseful!

This is a beautiful gift book. When Henry Forester is shot down during a bombing run over France, the World War II pilot finds himself trapped behind enemy lines. In constant danger of discovery by German soldiers, Henry begins a remarkable journey to freedom. Relying on the kindness of strangers, Henry moves from town to town--traveling by moonlight, never asking questions, or even the names of the people who help him along the way. Through his journey, Henry gains an understanding of the French and their struggle; and of his own place in a war that will change the face of Europe forever.

I ordered this book for school summer reading assignment for my daughter. She wasn't excited about about the "title" of the book, however, she thoroughly enjoyed the story.
