KIRKUS REVIEW

A courageous and exciting story of a British Red Cross ambulance driver in France. She and another girl were imprisoned by the Nazis as spies at the fall of France and sent to the ill-equipped hospital at Soissons. A French doctor turned stool pigeon and implicated her still further by turning in her diary, and she went to prison, -- no food to speak of, filthy conditions, crowded, a prison shared with Colette, Schiaparelli and many other famous French citizens. Eventually, freedom -- and a difficult escape from France. Good reading, and a new slant.
