When Hazel is given the chance to parachute into Nazi-occupied France, she seizes the opportunity to do more for the British war effort than file paperwork. Alongside her childhood friend, French-born Rose, she quickly rises up the ranks of the freedom fighters. For Rose, the Resistance is a link to her late husband, and a way to move forward without him. What starts out as helping downed airmen becomes a bigger cause when they meet Sophia, a German escapee and fierce critic of Hitler who is wanted by the Gestapo. Together the three women form a bond that will last a lifetime.

But amid the turmoil and tragedy of warfare, all three risk losing everything—and everyone—they hold dear. Will their united front be strong enough to see them through? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS

Being a book reviewer, I like having times when I can just read and not have to worry about doing a review. That was my intention with this book. I can't do that here though. This book was way too good to read and not say something. I cant Express how much I loved this story. I rated it a 5, but it was so much more than that. I have read many books about WW2. This book was that and so much more. I can honestly say I haven't read another like it. It gave me a new outlook. Usually, when reading about women and the war, they are tucked away safe at home. They keep the house, take care of family, and wait for the men to return. Not this book. In this book, you meet three women, Rose, Hazel, and Sophia. All three from a different place, each with a different story. They all come from different walks of life, but they all three have the same goal....to beat the Nazis by playing a part in the Resistance. I have read many books about WW2.

I came across it while browsing for a new read. It is filled with action and drama, love and pain. These women are brave in so many ways. They face capture, torture, and sure death daily. But they keep going. This is a story with danger around every corner. I loved each storyline. Sophia was by far the most painful for me. I cried for her. What she endured was just WOW. Hazel is amazing, and her bravery is inspiring. Rose has faced so much loss, but she keeps going. Each woman is brave in their own right, but when their storylines converge, and they begin working together, the outcome is enthralling.

This was a fantastic story. It was written well and like I said it was different in a good way. I'm so glad I came across this author and this book. I loved it. I had such a hard time putting it down. I can't wait to read more.
