For Beau: The Sarah Ashdown Story by Simon Gandossi
Genre: Historical Fiction
Release Date: December 15th 2016
Summary from Goodreads:
The ground shook with each bomb that fell on London. The night sky lit up, and the sounds of gun fire overwhelmed the city as our brave men fought back. It took so many bombs to fall on this great city to make the Germans realize that England could not be defeated. It took just one bomb to make one woman realize her true destiny. Sarah Ashdown's insurmountable guilt and remorse over the death of a young girl sets in motion one of the most unbelievable stories of World War II. An ordinary housewife who defied the odds to become one of the most wanted women in occupied Europe, her story of determination and courage will shock and inspire those who read it.
This story was amazing! Gandossi did a wonderful job portraying Sarah’s story. Sarah’s dear friend passed away and her husband disappeared. Sarah couldn’t cope with the loss so she left everything she knew and moved to France. Now, the French Resistance was working to fight off the German Army at this time and Sarah decided to help fight instead of doing nothing.
I really liked Sarah and how brave she was to leave everything she knew and move to a different country. That in itself must’ve been hard enough let alone joining an army to help fight a war. I highly recommend Gandossi’s For Beau.
