    Historical Fiction WW II France

    1942 France. Adèle Ambeh's father has arranged a marriage for her to Gerard Baudoin a member of the hated Vichy police, as her wedding day approaches to the collaborator she’s filled with dread and her mother organizes for her to escape to Lyon. Here she seeks refuge at the Sisters of Notre Dame del la Compassion convent and the sisters are involved in the French resistance, they hide weapons and people. Here she meets Marguerite a member of the resistance; as part of her new role she is sent back to Vichy and has to tell her fiancé she had a bad case of pre wedding nerves. Her father Albert, sister Charlotte side with the new regime and Adèle and her mother Pauline are against it. This tears their family apart, many of the locals take different sides and it’s hard to know who is a collaborator and who isn't. Vichy France is a spa town ruled by a puppet government and in charge of it is an elderly WW I French hero Philippe Petain. The area is referred to as the free zone; it’s far from free and many of the French people opposed the regime and continue to fight against the German occupation. Adèle is caught up in the desperate fight to free her country from the Nazi regime; the resistance fighters are involved in small forms of sabotage it’s risky and very dangerous and at any time they could be dobbed in by a local collaborator and captured by the Germans. The Girl from Vichy is a story about one brave woman standing up for what she believes in, and her loyalty to her country, Adèle knows the end of the war is very close; she and Luc need to stay one step ahead of the Germans until the allies arrive and avoid being captured. I really liked the book; it has a strong female protagonist, interesting story with lots of twist and turns and it's filled with suspense, intrigue, tragedy, danger, and four stars from me.

    The girl from Vichy

    Livre excellent, basé sur des documents d'époque. J'ai adoré ce livre, plein de rebondissements inattendus. On ne peut que louer le courage des résistants français, situation bien rendue dans ce livre. Merci à l'auteure pour ces heures de lecture passionnantes.

    Catchfly

    This is an emotional read, heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. The book is written about the French Resistance during WWII. It is especially about the women's role in the resistance, and the dangerous roles they played. How many times they had to pretend to be collaborating with the German's in order to gain information for the resistance. In doing so their own countrymen labeled them collaborators and were often mean to them. Even within families and friends the war split families apart. The characters in this story are realistic and believable. Adele, Marguerite, Luc, the mother superior and the priest, and even Adel's own mother worked with the resistance. Adele had to pretend to like a French policeman, Gerard, that collaborated with the Germans to gather information. The saddest part of the story is when she finds out her own sister Charlotte turned her in for working with the resistance. She is than on the run from the Gestapo with Marguerite and eventually captured and put in prison. The women of the resistance were taught to never speak when interrogated and they withstood severe torture. It is sad what the captured went through and what the Jewish people went through. It is inspiring that so many of the French fought back in the resistance, especially the women. This book kept me reading late at night and all the next day until I finished it. It was a page turner, and a tear jerker. It had a bit of romance and a lot of suspense. I know that if you read it you will be inspired by these women in the resistance. I would recommend this book. Thanks to Andie Newton, Aria Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of the book in return for an honest review.

    A Wonderful Read!

    What a wonderful read! The author has done her research on this one, and it pays off with a very informative read which kept me spellbound until the very last page. Adele Ambeh is young, French and, thanks to her father's recent announcement, on the cusp of marrying a man she's not sure of at all. Her mother doesn't like the idea either, and helps Adele to flee the situation by packing her off to a convent to take refuge. But all is not as it appears at the nunnery and it doesn't take long for Adele to become embroiled in the goings on which she discovers are connected to the French Resistance. Before long Adele must return to Vichy and pretend to be enchanted with the man she ran away from . . . I have always been fascinated by how ordinary people survived the Second World War domestically, and my interest extended to the French Resistance since reading about Edith Cavell and Violet Szabo when I was a young girl, admiring their selfless actions. The writing in this novel manages to convey the horrors of war, the terror of those living in occupied France whilst producing an absolutely gripping tale! My emotions were all over the place by the time I reached the final page, alternatively covering my mouth with a tissue with the horror of it all one moment and mopping up my tears the next. I can't imagine anyone reading this and not being greatly touched. Andie Newton has produced a fine novel which earns everyone of the five glittering stars I'm so very happy to give it. I cannot recommend this one highly enough - a must read.

    Absolutely Fantastic Read!

    The Girl from Vichy is now my standard for captivating and immersive historical fiction. Fast paced, and an overall outstanding book with strong characters, each with their own hurdles to overcome. The author did her research, the historical note will immediately suck you in. I knew little about Vichy during the war and I couldn't believe the heart wrenching choices people had to to make. But at the same time I was riveted with a heart-pounding plot. I could not turn the pages quick enough. The author created a loveable and admiring character in Adele, and an equally distasteful and conflicted character with Gerard. The story between Adele's parents, and her sister was immersive, and one of the most interesting and intriguing family dynamics I've read in a long time. Marguerite and Adele's friendship is something I will carry with me a long time. This book is something I will think about for a long time. Highly recommend this book!
