Set against the backdrop of World War II and following the offspring of families we met in ‘The Fall of Giants,’ Follett once again delivers a gripping tale.
Following the lives of individuals and families who are placed in circumstances that demand extraordinary acts of courage the reader experiences the war first hand.
You’ll meet Daisy Peskov an American heiress who sheds her aristocratic façade to become an ambulance driver during the London Blitzkrieg. Daisy falls in love with Lloyd Williams a British soldier who smuggles downed airmen out of German controlled territories.
There is also the story of Carla the young German girl who passes classified Nazi documents to a Russian spy to help stop the march of fascism.
An epic tale that brings to light the complexities of human behavior and government machinations. Follett focuses on ‘big picture’ events while bringing to life the trials of everyday people and gives the reader a true taste of daily life during wartime.
Also available on CD.
Until next time…see you in the stacks!
