This was an enjoyable book that was both exciting and realistic. Henry was a likeable character, though we didn't get to know Patsy, his love interest very well. I wish I knew what had happened to Claudette, Pierre and the other French characters who helped him, but it looks like I'd have to read the sequel to find out. While I liked Henry, Claudette was a much more interesting character, so it was rather frustrating not to know her fate. Not to know if she realized the evil of shedding blood in revenge. It seemed in the moments before Henry was separated from her (apparently for good) that she may have learned that, but because we didn't see her again, it's possible that her anger, hate and bitterness will come back after her perceived loss of Henry. This was a good book. It reminded me of [b: The Violins of Autumn|12987173|Violins of Autumn|Amy McAuley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344316810s/12987173.jpg|18146888] and (the nonfiction) [b: When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son|13549208|When Hitler Took Austria A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son|Kurt Schuschnigg|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1331923067s/13549208.jpg|19115087].
