“An extraordinary profile of immense courage and daring.”—Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Left Cuba   “If you only read one WWII book this year, make it this one."—Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Orphans   In the depths of war, she would defy the odds to help liberate a nation…a gripping historical novel based on the remarkable true story of World War II heroine Virginia Hall, from the bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl   France, March 1944. Virginia Hall wasn't like the other young society women back home in Baltimore—she never wanted the debutante ball or silk gloves. Instead, she traded a safe life for adventure in Europe, and when her beloved second home is thrust into the dark days of war, she leaps in headfirst. Once she's recruited as an Allied spy, subverting the Nazis becomes her calling. But even the most cunning agent can be bested, and in wartime trusting the wrong person can prove fatal. Virginia is haunted every day by the betrayal that ravaged her first operation, and will do everything in her power to avenge the brave people she lost. While her future is anything but certain, this time more than ever Virginia knows that failure is not an option. Especially when she discovers what—and whom—she's truly protecting.

Editorial Reviews

“An extraordinary profile of immense courage and daring.” Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author
“[A] strong, fascinating heroine and her cinematic derring-do.” AARP Magazine
“Robuck delivers an edge-of-the-seat WWII spy story…[and] creates an indelible portrait of an unforgettable hero.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“One of the best World War II novels I have read in quite a while. The intensity is unrelenting….We may not have learned about Virginia Hall’s role as a heroine in history class, but this novel ensures her efforts will remain invisible no longer.” Criminal Element
“Narrator Caroline Hewitt performs this partially fictionalized account of the work of Virginia Hall… Hewitt’s measured pace is a good match for the accounts of Hall’s careful planning and dangerous maneuvers. She creates different voices for the characters, distinguishing their backgrounds by implementing recognizable French, British, German, and American accents. Hall’s heroism is inspirational, teaching listeners that a single person’s acts can have a large impact.” AudioFile
“If you only read one WWII book this year, make it this one.” Natasha Lester, author of The Paris Orphans
“Robuck delivers an edge-of-the-seat WWII spy story…[and] creates an indelible portrait of an unforgettable hero.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
