  • Code Name Hèlène

    Historical fiction at it's best! Based on historical facts from WWll this story takes you on a surprising journey that you probably never knew about. Highly recommended.

  • A remarkable woman of great intelligence!

    This novel has truly great storytelling, based on the real life Nancy Wake, a remarkable woman of great intelligence and courage. One of the top French Resistance leaders during WWll, Helene organized weapons and supplies from Allied Forces for nearly destitute fighters seeking to rid France of German invaders. Her marriage was a light in the darkness of this time and was beautifully highlighted throughout. The author of this book did thorough research and using both primary documents (including Nancy's own biography) and other books and articles based on interviews with Nancy, she created a gripping novel of this time in history.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Code Name Helene

    I couldn’t put it down. This is an amazing story very well told. The fact that Nancy Wade was never arrested by the Gestapo speaks volumes about the loyalty of her fellow warriors and her own sagacity and resourcefulness. What a story and what a woman. Weaving back and forth between different times created an amazing clarity and tension.

    Thanks for your feedback!
