hard to read
I had a hard time getting into this book.
Defy the night is a coming of age story set against the backdrop of France around 1940. It tells the story of Magali as she helps to bring children refugees to safety after removing them from internment camps
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.. Readers never know what will happen next.
I just found it was to modern for me who loves war books. The setting of "free" France during early World War II is something most people are not aware of because it was when most of the world was in denial. The people there fought on silently doing what they could for whom they could. This was not the Resistance as most people know of but perhaps it's predecessor.
