Daughters Of War

Dinah Jefferies


Harpercoll­ins, €10.50

It’s 1944 and in a Dordogne village three sisters are living under Nazi occupation.

Nurse Hélène sees it as her duty to care for her sisters – headstrong Elise who has joined the Resistance and dreamer Florence who longs for everything to return to how it was before the war. But one night the sisters’ quiet lives are turned upside down when Allied fighters knock on their door in dire need of help and they all find themselves in deadly peril.

Dinah Jefferies, author of bestsellin­g The Tea Planter’s Wife, is a wonderful writer and her story of wartime bravery is a joy to read, full of evocative descriptio­ns of life in rural France.
