Overview

World War II certainly had its share of deserving heroes and heroines, many of whom have received their due recognition. But how many civilian women can say they saved the lives of at least 250 downed airmen in just over two years?
"Code Name Lily" takes you on an unforgettable journey from Belgium, into France, and over the Pyrenees Mountains into Spain. An extremely clever and persuasive young Belgian nurse outsmarts the Nazis time and again, risking her life if she is caught, but protecting every airman she successfully aids to evade the Germans.
"Code Name Lily" is based on the true story of Micheline "Michou" Dumon-Ugeux, a legend in the Comet Line escape network from 1940-1944 who went only by the name of Lily. You, too, will fall in love with Lily.

About the Author

Julien Ayotte is the author of four other novels, including the award-winning "Flower of Heaven" and "Dangerous Bloodlines." "Code name Lily" is his first historical fiction based on a true story. His mother emigrated as a child to the United States from Belgium just after World War I, so the themes and places in this book hold special meaning for the author.
