So, I finished Jackdaws by Ken Follett a couple of weeks ago, but since I read it for a book club, I held off the post until after I had met with them.

Jackdaws is a story from two points of view, set during the war we have the point of view of Flick, a British woman working with the French Resistance and a German solider living in occupied France. It was a book I borrowed from the library, which only gave me three weeks to read it, and I didn’t start reading it until a week after I borrowed it so I was afraid I was not going to finish it but it was so captivating, I couldn’t put it down. The story takes place in the week up to D-Day in occupied France as Flick and her team of women work to undermine the German forces in France. There were a number of points in the book however that I found too graphic and I had to skip over but the story was so important it was worth reading. I wasn’t sure after the first couple of chapters that I was going to be able to get through it but I’m so glad I did.

The book is incredible, if you’re a fan of historic fiction, I would definitely recommend it. Although, I would like to read something a little lighter next time so I’m taking suggestions!
