Read full description of the books:
Yes! A book that is really worth it. This is why I love historical fiction so much. You get to see the real heroes even if it is fictional. People who are made up, but may very well be like many of those who were there. The book is following a young American farm boy by the name of Henry Forrester who is the youngest pilot around. It may be in an American's point of view but it is clear that it was to show how much the French Resistance worked during WWII.
Henry is one of the best pilots, but don't let that fool you. He spends most all the book on solid ground hiding from Nazi soldiers after his plane crashes. And Henry finds himself in the thick of Nazi occupied France, where there is distrust and secrets at every turn. Not even those that want him alive say much to him and having a terrible accent he can't do much with a disguise.
As in most historical fiction Henry’s story draws out a sadness from stories of others who have lost and stories of unfairness. With Henry you see just what people are capable of and this goes both ways. He makes friends and loses some. Through all the hiding, all the secrets, all the torture and waiting Henry can only keep sane by memories of home and the hope that one day he may go back.
Henry wants so much to live, not only for himself and the ones he loves, but also in a way for the ones who risked their lives to save his for a cause greater than any one of them. But in a way that the individual is not forgotten, not by Henry they aren't. And with how much he is transferred, then captured, then safe, and captured again Henry has to use all his will he can get to push through. It became an almost boiling frustration even for me and I was just reading it.
But through all this frustration I can say I believe it is worth it. Because it makes the end just the most perfect moment.
