Overview

Violins of Autumn by Amy McAuley

When the Germans begin bombing London in World War II, Betty is determined to do her part. Instead of running air raid drills like most girls her age, she lies about her age and trains to become a spy. Now known by her secret agent persona, Adele Blanchard, she finds herself parachuting over German-occupied France under the cover of darkness to join the secret Resistance movement. Prepared to die for her cause, Adele wasn't expecting to make a new best friend in her fellow agent or fall for a handsome American pilot. With the brutality of war ever present, can Adele dare to dream of a future where the world is at peace and she is free to live and love of her own accord?

Having lived through WWII, I can only call this a juvenile interpretation of it. I had the impression this was written by a young, immature person who had read about WWII, but did little in-depth research. It had the basis for a great book, but was trite and lacked substance in its delivery. So, yes, it was a story set in the time of WWII, but by no means will you gain a true perspective of what people actually endured at that time.
