Review: RESISTANCE by Anita Shreve

resistanceTracey from A Book Sanctuary recently reviewed Resistance by Anita Shreve.  Here’s a snippet:

Near the Belgian village of Delahaut at the end of 1943, a B-17 bomber crash lands. With German soldiers heading towards the scene, it is a race against time to save the American pilot Ted Brice, found semi-conscious by a 10 year old local boy Jean Benoit.

Claire Dussois is the wife of Henri, together they are members of the local Maquis (Resistance), hiding people in a small attic room in their house until they can be moved down the line and into safety in France. Henri is afraid and a quietly reluctant participant but Claire with her nursing and language skills is a crucial link in the chain. At the time this story begins, they have already housed 28 people throughout the course of the war. The American pilot will be their 29th and last.
