While it may have taken many chapters to introduce the characters and to get a feel for the time frame, after that I was hooked. I really had not understood what happened at Dunkirk, but this really gave me insight into this particular time during World War II. The ones that really hit me hardest were the cadets at the school fighting for their country. For anyone interested in the World Wars, this is an excellent read! ( )

This long detailed tome is set against the backdrop of world war II. Several stories are told which at times intertwine with each other. My favorite was on the two American sisters running an orphanage in Paris and of the french street children that they eventually take in. At the end of the story they escape Paris before the Nazi's invade by commendeering a boat and taking off down the Siene--great stuff. Read this one if you like historical fiction told from a Christian point of view. ( )
