Summary: England, 1940. Clare Childs knew life would change when she unexpectedly inherited the Maggie Bright―a noble fifty-two-foot yacht. In fact, she’s counting on it. But the boat harbors secrets. When a stranger arrives, searching for documents hidden onboard, Clare is pulled into a Scotland Yard investigation that could shed light on Hitler’s darkest schemes and prompt America to action.
Across the Channel, Hitler’s Blitzkrieg has the entire British army in retreat with little hope for rescue at the shallow beaches of Dunkirk. With time running out, Churchill recruits civilian watercraft to help. Hitler is attacking from land, air, and sea, and any boat that goes might not return. Yet Clare knows Maggie Bright must answer the call―piloted by an American who has refused to join the war effort until now and a detective with a very personal motive for exposing the truth.
The fate of the war hinges on this rescue. While two men join the desperate fight, a nation prays for a miracle.
First let me start off by saying how I loved this book. It is set during the beginning of World War 2 in England, and is about the battle at Dunkirk, and so many other things-before I read this book I have never heard of Dunkirk, and I was amazed.-
I fell in love with all of the characters, how the authoress wove all of their lives together, and made a spectacular story. I love anything historical, and this novel was really amazing. The author introduces you to the time of when England knows nothing about the horrors of what the Nazis are doing, and how a small group of people are laying their lives down to show the truth of what's happening. Tracy Groot did a wonderful job with this book, and I couldn't stop reading it. It was full of twists and turns, and when I would finish a section of the book, I was full with excitement to see there was still more to come.
If you love history, action, and books about WW2 then you'll really enjoy it, I definitely suggest this book.
I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars
I received this book free from Tyndale Blog Network for an honest review
