The girl who fell from the sky – Simon Mawer

Just finished listening to Simon Mawer‘s recent novel: ‘The Girl who fell from the sky’. Most enjoyable thriller set in World War 2. Girl recruited in England to work with the Resistance in France. Deals with the recruitment process, the training, the preparation for France and her experience in France. Mixed in with this dealing with the girl’s various relationships and her growing independence.

Very much enjoyed the book – the pace, the tension, the development of the character and her interaction with others involved in the Resistance. Some of the scenes described capture a level of tension, fear, terror that cinema directors would struggle to re enact.

Would be tempted to read another Mawer novel after this one.
