A prostitute, a spy, and the liberation of Paris.
Sold by her parents to settle a debt, Rolande Bisset is forced into prostitution. Years later, shunned by her family and most of society, it’s the only way she knows how to subsist. When the Germans overrun Paris, she decides she’s had enough of evil men controlling her life and uses her wiles to obtain information for the Allied forces. Branded a collaborator, her life hangs in the balance. Then an American spy stumbles onto her doorstep. Is redemption within her grasp?
Simon Harlow is one of an elite corps of American soldiers. Regularly chosen for dangerous covert missions, he is tasked with infiltrating Paris to ascertain the Axis’s defenses. Nearly caught by German forces moments after arriving, he owes his life to the beautiful prostitute who claims she’s been waiting for the Allies to arrive. Her lifestyle goes against everything he believes in, but will she steal his heart during his quest to liberate her city?
Inspired by the biblical story of Rahab, Love’s Rescue is a tale of faith and hope during one of history’s darkest periods.

Author Linda Matchett always writes about historical experiences that few people are aware of. I never knew about the prostitutes that worked for the resistance during WWII. What an interesting story of survival. But even more than history, this novella is a great reminder of God’s love. That no matter how far we stray or how bad we believe our sin to be, He is full of mercy, forgives us, and welcomes us Home. Because this book is a novella it moved quickly and I read it in one sitting, but I still got to know the characters and their struggles. A retelling of the story of Rahab, I found it to be true to the time frame of its telling and highly recommend it. I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.
