As I read this book I felt the main character (Sophie) was perhaps a bit “overplayed”. With that in mind I was going to down grade my rating, however upon learning that the story was written so closely to actual events, I upped my rating to 4 stars. The book was interesting throughout; having read so many of this author’s books I have to rate in comparison with the many others. I would certainly recommend.
I had hoped for a different outcome. Cowards that they all were, knowing that they were likely in agreement to some degree, could have done something.
Another wonderful book from one of my favourite authors. The story shines a light on the courage of a few brave souls in the face of adversity. That courage knew no bounds and should not be forgotten. Highly recommended.
The Whote Tose Network is a tale that is hard to put down. At this time in our lives, it is bringing many parallels to what is occurring! Very frightening for us if people don’t learn history.
Gut wrenching and well written story of resistance right under the noses of The Third Reich. It’s a love story of freedom and love of country. The bravery will astound you.
I read a lot of WWII stories and this is the first book by Ellie Midwood that I have read. It was interesting because it delt with the German resistance that distributed pamphlets to the citizens of Germany encouraging them to act against Hitler and his Nazis. It is also a true story. I will have to read some more of Ellie’s WWII books.
