  • Historical Fiction WW II French Riviera

    Paris 1943: Lana Hartmann is on her way to see her husband Fredric to tell him some very good news, when she arrives at the convent where he teaches music, she's horrified to see Gestapo officer Alois Brunner shoot him dead for giving a Jewish girl piano lessons and she flees the scene. Lana’s devastated she doesn’t know what to do, she’s in complete shock for a couple of months and once she finally drags herself out of bed she passes her time by helping at the convent. Lana’s approached to join the resistance they want her to move to the French Riviera to be a spy, her mother Tatiana is a Russian countess and Lana has the perfect background to mix with the other Russian aristocrats already living there. They want her to mingle with the white Russians, attend glitzy parties, and go to the casino; hopefully drunken German soldiers might mention things in front of a pretty woman and let their guard down. Lana's worried what people will think of her living with Guy Pascal a Swiss industrialist so soon after her husbands death; despite it only being a cover story, they assure her during such times these things are over looked by high society and she’s far too young to be single for long. The plan is for her gather information under the Nazi’s noses about upcoming raids, Jewish people are being sent to a camp at Drancy and the couple also help Jewish people escape. Lana is kind, thoughtful and despite numerous warnings from Guy that she needs to be extremely careful, she can’t save everyone and she still takes risks. Lana can’t turn away and ignore someone who needs help and especially a recently orphaned young Jewish girl. Set in the beautiful French Rivera Lana’s War is a story about revenge, Lana has a very strong conscience, and she wants France to be free from Nazi rule and her husband death has made her very determined to achieve this. She wants to help save as many Jewish people as she can, she also wants justice for her husbands Fredric’s death and hopefully Alois Brunner will get what he deserves. I really enjoyed Lana's War, I highly recommend reading this book and especially if you like WW II historical fiction and five stars from me.
