   Disappointing
The chapters The characters weren 't World War II themed I don 't like Dev I 't like books about World War II. Bonus : I usually like World War II - themed books, especially when they involve families. This was so disappointing. The characters were developed poorly. In my opinion, the two character story line wasn 't necessary. In both stories, so much was unbelievable.

   They Answered The Call
I really enjoyed this book ''. Very well written, at times very suspenseful and an excellent weave of the stories of three women who had seen better times in their lives. It is a story of the bravery of women who have put their lives in jeopardy during some of our darkest hours, and I was happy to learn their story.

   Fascinating History
This was a historical work of wonderful fiction by Pam Jenoff. It is based on the true story of a unit of English women during World War II, who were flown into British occupied France to transmit messages back to the headquarters of the English Army in London. I started it up again once I put it down.

   Don’t Read
Just three, the radio operator always sends messages from the same location instead of moving. They blow the bridge weeks before the invasion instead of the night before. And finally, the secret of where the invasion was going to be the second most closely guarded secret of WWII, yet a month before the leader of this group of agents mentions it in a meeting with all present.

   Glaring Anachronisms
Thank you to all the readers who have disliked this book. I thought it might be only my picky reading that found so many inaccuracies and anachronisms, but it seems I am not alone. I have read only a fraction of the book so far and it has me cringing a lot ''. Meticulous research? As others have said, don 't waste your money unless silly historical romances are your cup of tea.

   Good but
For most of the story, the focus on romance and decisions made just did not work for me.
