Her Secret Resistance
Poland, 1944. “Please, officer, I beg you—,” I cry. But my father has already fallen. “Don’t leave me, Tata,” I whisper, rushing to desperately cradle him close. As the kind, loving man who raised me takes his last breath, I weep into my hands and promise to fight to end this terrible war, no matter the cost…
Devasted by the loss of her beloved father, twenty-three-year-old Wanda vows to follow in his footsteps and join the resistance against the German occupiers. Her father lost his life protecting innocent people from Nazi cruelty—she will risk her life too.
Under the cover of shadows, Wanda slips down cobbled streets and past spired buildings to meet an informant who could provide crucial supplies for their fight. But the sight of the man waiting turns Wanda’s blood to ice. She instantly recognises him as the soldier who killed her father.
Who is this man: Nazi soldier, or double agent? Why did he kill her father—could her Tata be a traitor? If Wanda chooses to trust the man who destroyed her family, will she put the whole resistance network in danger—or is this her chance to save hundreds of innocent lives?
Fans of The Alice Network, The Nightingale and The Tattooist of Auschwitz will adore this utterly heartbreaking page-turner. You will not forget this unputdownable story of love, loss, and the courage it takes to hold on to hope in darkest times.
