Review by: Marc Mordey on March 08, 2012 :
this, the third of the Lavender Road series is, for me, the best. It follows through on the lives and welfare of the key characters, who I have grown to love through the course of the first 2 books, but it also takes the reader into (literally) new territoies as one of the principle characters becomes involved with the SOE and is flown clandestinely into France to work with the Resistance. Gripping stuff - roll on the next instalment please!
