This was a great book. The details were fantastic! I loved the set up of the "footnotes", which were easily accesable as I read. I found them very informative and helpful to read as I read the book. It took a little bit longer to read but helped make the book more informative. It made it very easy to get back to the place where I was reading. The struggle that Virginia went through and her strength was amazing. She helped so many people without any selfish motives. It made me appreciate more the sacrifices that men and womem did during WWII. My life is blessed because God put these people to help rid this world of the tyranny of those years!

This is a personal account of life as a political prisoner in German Nazi encampments and is not a dry recitation of history, but rather a passionate, real and often unbelievable account of the strength of an American woman, married to a Frenchman and how she survives her ordeal guided by the love of her adopted country and her man. The writing is superb and the book a page turner. I teared many times and, as with most great books I read, I didn't want it to come to an end. Yes, I highly recommend this book.
