The Spark of Resistance: Women Spies in WWII – Kit Sergeant

As the free world crumbles beneath Hitler’s jackboot, the French Resistance is depending on these women to change the course of history…
Daring Mathilde Carré has always dreamed of glory. When the handsome Armand invites her to become his second-in-command of Interallié, one of the founding circuits of the Resistance, she jumps at the chance. But when Armand falls for another woman, how far is Mathilde willing to go to exact her revenge?

When Odette Sansom, a married mother of three, is recruited to become a spy with the Special Operations Executive (SOE), she reluctantly accepts, knowing that she might never see her family again. Living a life in shadows with a false identity, Odette experiences more freedom in Occupied France than she has ever known, and her circuit leader, Peter Churchill, is everything her husband isn’t. But one man threatens to destroy all they’ve achieved…

Didi Nearne has always lived in the shadow of her sister, Jackie. Although she dreams of becoming an agent with the SOE like her sister, they hire her as a wireless operator instead. As the networks are infiltrated and the on-the-ground agents disappear, Didi is finally given her chance. Will she be able to avoid the Gestapo or suffer the fates of her fellow spies?
