Rose Justice is a young pilot with the Air Transport Auxiliary during the Second World War. On her way back from a semi-secret flight in the waning days of the war, Rose is captured by the Germans and ends up in Ravensbrück, the notorious Nazi women's concentration camp. There, she meets an unforgettable group of women, including a once glamorous and celebrated French detective novelist whose Jewish husband and three young sons have been killed; a resilient young girl who was a human guinea pig for Nazi doctors trying to learn how to treat German war wounds; and a Nachthexen, or Night Witch, a female fighter pilot and military ace for the Soviet air force. These damaged women must bond together to help each other survive.

The subject matter is great, but the delivery was most definitely very juvenile.

Voice of narrator was irritating and took away from the story. Her tone did not fit the era, and the accents for most of the characters were so bad it was distracting. Try reading the book instead of listening to it.

Listening to this book brought the characters to life. It wasn't as gripping with the twists and turns in Code Name Verity, but it still had a gut wrenching effect. The Holocaust, the friendships and the bravery explored make this a powerful read, especially for young women.

This CD version of the story has an excellent reader, who's use of accents really helped bring all the various characters in this gripping story to life!

This follow up to "Code Name Verity" is a powerful, heartbreaking story that is exceptionally well told. Although it is fiction, It is based on real accounts from concentration camp survivors. The reader, Sasha Pick, is outstanding. She does amazing accents in American, English, Polish, German, French and Russian.
