Staff Reviews

A suspenseful WWII story played out in Scotland, with a cast of characters itching to be a bigger part of the war. When an Enigma Machine is hidden in their midst by a German pilot, suddenly the stakes couldn’t be higher. I raced through this book and loved each of the three characters telling the story. Although some of these characters have appeared in Wein’s previous novels, this one can be enjoyed all on its own. I highly recommend it!

“Elizabeth Wein yet again humanizes history by taking the true story of the Allies capturing the first enigma machine in World War II and using that background to tell the deeply personal stories of three disparate young people who find each other in the midst of war. With characters familiar and new, Wein’s story captures both the danger and turbulence of a world at war, and the moments of happiness that still emerge in spite of that.”
