Erika Robuck is such a wonderful historical fiction writer! She’s written a number of historical fiction works that follow different women of often famous man counter parts. For example, Hemingway’s Girl and The House of Hawthorne. I have really enjoyed her books and I am never disappointed!
Her latest book, The Invisible Woman, while different in that it doesn’t follow a women behind a famous man it is set during WWII and promises a moving story full of spies and intrigue! Not to mention it is based on a true story! I cannot wait to read this one, it has so many exciting angles and promises to be a memorable story!
I couldn’t fit it on my review calendar this month but I wanted to share all the details of this one with you guys, as it has a lot to recommend itself! I definitely have this one on my review calendar for the upcoming spring though but in the mean time check out all the info for this one and pick up a copy today as it’s out now!
“An extraordinary profile of immense courage and daring.”—Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Left Cuba
“If you only read one WWII book this year, make it this one.”–Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Orphans
In the depths of war, she would defy the odds to help liberate a nation…a gripping historical novel based on the remarkable true story of World War II heroine Virginia Hall, from the bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl
France, March 1944. Virginia Hall wasn’t like the other young society women back home in Baltimore–she never wanted the debutante ball or silk gloves. Instead, she traded a safe life for adventure in Europe, and when her beloved second home is thrust into the dark days of war, she leaps in headfirst.
Once she’s recruited as an Allied spy, subverting the Nazis becomes her calling. But even the most cunning agent can be bested, and in wartime trusting the wrong person can prove fatal. Virginia is haunted every day by the betrayal that ravaged her first operation, and will do everything in her power to avenge the brave people she lost.
While her future is anything but certain, this time more than ever Virginia knows that failure is not an option. Especially when she discovers what–and whom–she’s truly protecting. (summary from Goodreads)
