A Photojournalist Risks Her Life to Save Children

Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.

Journalist Nellie Wilkerson has spent the bulk of the war in London, photographing pilots taking off and landing—and she’s bored. She jumps at the chance to go to France, where the Allied forces recently landed. She enlists Jean-Paul Breslau of the French underground to take her to the frontlines. On the journey, they come upon an orphanage where nuns shelter children with disabilities. Can they help save them before the Nazis come to liquidate it?

Book Excerpt

Jean-Paul raised his hands.

“What is it we have here?” The Nazi spoke perfect French.

Jean-Paul couldn’t pretend not to understand him. “My friends and I were out for a walk when we saw a low-flying plane. We decided to investigate.”

“Is that so? And you expect me to believe it?”

Oui, for that is the truth. Imagine my surprise when the plane dropped this box.”

“I’m sure it puzzled you a great deal.” Though Jean-Paul couldn’t make out the man’s face, there was no mistaking that he was tall and broad. A well-honed German prepared to fight.

Two more Nazis stepped from the shadows. Who knew how many soldiers there were around them. Perhaps more hiding among the trees.

If only he hadn’t left Henri behind. Then they would have four to fight these Germans. Even so, no matter how many of them there were, they were unarmed. It was too dangerous to carry weapons in case they got picked up.

Like now.

But a few guns would have given them a chance to get away.

A burst of anti-aircraft fire filled the sky, pounding against Jean-Paul’s eardrums. A brief whistle.
