    I would not be 100% truthful if I said that historical fiction is my favorite genre It isn t However, I was fortunate to receive an ARC of Code Name Helene by author Ariel Lawhon which won me over with a fantastic tale of heroism This book is set toward the end of World War II, but it s much than a war story It s a story about a strong, opinionated, brave, and determined woman who worked with the French Resistance during WWII The heroine s real name was Nancy Wake and she brought order, weapons,

    I was really surprised and intrigued by this story The narratives were well interwoven and the pacing was great I really enjoyed learning about this particular facet of history, as it was one I wasn t familiar with and felt like a unique topic for a WW2 story This book also balanced levity with the seriousness of the topic in a way that this book didn t feel oppressively dark or heavy Overall this was a really great read.

    I received an advance readers copy ahead of an event with the author.So here s the deal I m one of those people who still enjoys historical fiction and WWII novels HOWEVER, if I wasn t that person, I still would have enjoyed this novel Yes, it s set during WWII, but that s not what it s about It s about a badass woman, a REAL woman, who spied for England and France during the war A woman who led thousands of men in battle A woman who sabotaged the Germans to protect the country she loved A woman who wore lipstick as her armor A wo

    I finished this my first Ariel Lawhon a few weeks ago and I m still thinking about Helene The power of her story would be enough to stand on its own, but Lawhon s graceful execution, her power of sensory imagery to take the reader both from the brink of despair to the bower of a bridal night makes this novel exceptional The story is circular, you will begin where you end, but the tale between the first and last chapters brings to life the role one woman played in the liberation of France during the Nazi occupation of WWII Even powerful

    Inspired by the true story of Nancy Wake, a spy for Great Britain during WWII, this is a beautiful work of historical fiction Nancy becomes part of the Resistance while living in France with her husband, Henri When she is about to be discovered she escapes to Spain and then to England where she is recruited to return to France to help the Maquis She is a tough, formidable woman who just wants to see her beloved husband again Lawhon weaves these two narratives together brilliantly and leaves with a story about a badass real life woman while not
