The history of the Second World War is told in a new way by Kristin Hannah, the author brings in the role of the women during the war. France was invaded pretty badly by the Germans during the war and many of the villages around the border completely vanished after the air raids and the ground attacks.
Carriveau was one of those villages that were hit severely by the Germans as the forces showed no mercy towards the locals. Vianne a native found herself alone and helpless with her daughter when the Nazi forces started the attack. Her husband left the family many days ago when he was called by the army.

The mother and daughter were on their own after that, Vianne struggles hard for their survival as she even takes refuge under the shadow of an enemy. A few chapters later the story shifts to Vianne’s sister who is still young and has the spark of youth in her. Wartime brings leisure for Isabelle in the form of a young officer who thinks the same way as she does.
Love proves to be a smokescreen for young Isabelle when the young officer deceives her. The incident takes her innocence away from her and she joins the group of rebels fighting against the Germans. Both sisters thus select their way of survival and put their life on the line for the sake of different goals. Polly Stone struggles to give a French accent to the characters in some parts.
The accent was not needed rather a clarity of speech does the trick. The Great Alone and Winter Garden can prove to be the best choice along with this book. Several of the historical events match in these books in presentation also the sentiments between the male and female characters have some similarity.
