Code Name Hélène

DUE IN MARCH: Lawhorn's book knocked my socks off! This brilliant fictional portrayal of Aussie Nancy Wake, a member of the French resistance, will keep you up 'til the wee hours. Wake's resilience, courage, and selflessness in the face of danger and unspeakable loss is all the more astounding given the obstacles women had to overcome to take their rightful place as leaders. Lawhorn's book will remind readers once again of how perilously close we came to a world dominated by fascists and the gratitude we owe those who fought against them at great threat to themselves.
