Trapeze - Simon Mawer

Trapeze - Simon Mawer (2012)

After my last failing to get me into the spirit of the second world war, I found this one drew me into the world of soldiers, spies and gas masks straight away.

Our young heroine is bought up bilingual and is selected to go on a secret mission into France, and make contact with a young man from her youth, who is important to the war effort.

I really enjoyed the beginning and end of the book, but I got a bit muddled in the middle, as for me I couldn't imagine the France that it described and there seemed a collection of fleeting characters that I couldn't picture.
