The Resistance Girl: A heartbreaking World War 2 historical fiction novel Kindle Edition
A heart-wrenching World War 2 story of love, war and sacrifice.
'A story that will keep you mesmerised until the very end.'★★★★★
Two women. One heartbreaking secret.
Paris, 1943. Sylvie Martone is the star of French cinema, and adored by fans. But as Nazi officers swarm the streets of Paris, she is spotted arm in arm with an SS Officer and her fellow Parisians begin to turn against her.
However Sylvie has a secret - one she must protect with her life...
Paris, 2020. Juliana Chastain doesn't know anything about her family history. While her mother was alive she remained very secretive about her past.
So when Juliana discovers a photograph of a glamorous French actress from World War Two amongst her mother's possessions, she is in shock to find herself looking at her grandmother - especially as she is arm in arm with a Nazi Officer...
Desperate for answers, Juliana is determined to trace the journey of her grandmother. Surely there is more to the photograph than meets the eye?
But as she delves into Sylvie's past, nothing can prepare Juliane for the tales of secrets, betrayal and sacrifice which she will uncover.
Perfect for fans of Pam Jenoff, Suzanne Goldring and Ella Carey.

Scary, frightening times to fight through and having to continue to fight on a different levels through changing generations against the bureaucracy after the actual war
So much happening on so many differing levels while the characters lived their lives.
Enjoyable and enlightening.

For the writing that puts the reader in the scene where we can hear and see and maybe smell exactly what happened...
For the historical accuracy...
For the wide timespan covered in Sylvie's story....
For a book filled with action and plot twists all the way through, rather than a slow build to a single climax...
For the Parisian glamour, including both the wardrobe and the French phrases throughout the book...
For the character of Sylvie (again)...
...I cannot give less than 4 stars.
For the hand of the editor being too obvious...
For the mistakes in grammar/spelling (few, but obvious)...
For meeting characters again but having them introduced like it's the first time...
For the poorly-executed friends-to-lovers trope...
For the telling, instead of showing, for the modern part of the story...
For the threads unfinished...
For the under-developed Madelaine...
For the character whose only function is plot convenience...
For the anti-climactic ending...
For all these small points...
I cannot give it more than 4 stars either.
But I loved Sylvie and I loved the action-packed storyline that really had my heart in my throat and me on the edge of my seat. That's what books should do, and this is the best example I've found for a while. Maybe I was too critical, but it's such an exciting story that I hated anything that dragged me out of it for even a second! Anything at all that broke the suspension of disbelief. Because this is a book that really made me feel things.
Maybe more of a romantic novel than I usually go for but nonetheless, I found this to be a gripping tale, well told, with a high degree of historical accuracy.
I loved the way that the story switches between the war years and present day, the book might not have worked as well had it been written any other way.
The descriptions of the principal characters are superb without being too detailed.
I highly recommend this book.
