Flame of Resistance Book Review

One of my favorite things about summer is reading. On a Sunday afternoon I love to sit in the sun or lay in the hammock and read. There just isn't much that is better than escaping with a book. I discovered last month that I can read selected books before they are published and review them for different publishers. I honestly was giddy at the thought of getting to read books before anyone else.

My first book is Flame of Resistance a historical fiction book. This novel is set in France during the Nazi occupation before D-Day. The novel begins with an American Air Force pilot going down over France. He is saved by the French Resistance. After healing he begins working as an undercover Nazi Officer to help out the French Resistance’s cause. He is partnered with a prostitute to help with the covert operation. The relationship between the two of them was very interesting to read.

The book was a little slow to get into, but it was well worth reading. The book is well written and very enjoyable. I found the time period (World War II) very interesting. Tracy Groot has researched heavily in order to share such a historically sound story. The characters were a little bit hard to keep up with because of all of the character code names, but once I got into the book I couldn’t put it down. The intrigue and suspense made this book one that I would recommend.

I received this book free from Tyndale in order to give an honest review.
