It's late June 1944. The allies have invaded Normandy and Chris Weymouth, an allied spy, has been living in a French village at the edge of the Bocage playing piano in a local cabaret at night while passing bad intelligence to the Germans. He has been expecting orders to leave at any time but is taken aback when they are delivered by a young Catholic nun named Sister Mary.

Sister Mary however, is much more than her habit and wimple, she has her own secrets too. She informs Chris that he's been ordered to help her transport four young children across the dangerous French farmland known as the hedgerows to St. Lo.

Espionage, passion, intrigue, and danger surround them on all sides as they head directly into one of the bloodiest battles of World War II, the battle of the hedgerows!

" The Hedgerows of June" captures the substance of a war and love story to the T. You travel throughout the visions of war and come to know characters/plot and scenery so that you visual the full story. His characters come alive with the history of the brutal war and the knowledge that in the end all will be okay. Love will win out even thru the disasters and deaths.. Love conquers all. I would recommend this to anyone with a romantic heart that is also a history buff.

I just finished this book by Ron Shannon. I liked the characters from page one.The plot of The Hedgerows of June was filled with suspense. I found myself not wanting to put the book down; wanting to find out what happens next . The detail given to what happened while the characters were traveling through the Hedgerows made me feel as if I was crawling along the ground with the characters too. The book brought me back in history as well as made me realize what we as families may take for granted today. Ron Shannon is a gifted writer. I am looking forward to reading many more books by this talented writer. I would love to find out what happens next in the lives of these characters.
