A Photojournalist Risks Her Life to Save Children
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
Journalist Nellie Wilkerson has spent the bulk of the war in London, photographing pilots taking off and landing—and she’s bored. She jumps at the chance to go to France, where the Allied forces recently landed. She enlists Jean-Paul Breslau of the French underground to take her to the frontlines. On the journey, they come upon an orphanage where nuns shelter children with disabilities. Can they help save them before the Nazis come to liquidate it?

Then a loud bang, and large fireball lit the night.
Non, non. They had gotten the plane. Those poor Americans had no chance of survival.
“I know what’s running through your mind, Jean-Paul.”
He whipped around to discover Henri sauntering into the clearing, the glow of a cigarette brightening as he took a drag.
“Too bad about the Americans going down. At least their death was swift.”
“Henri? You’re part of them?” Too many of his countrymen were collaborators. Too few were maquisards, resistance fighters.
“You underestimated me, mon ami. I’m not the slow, stupid man you think I am. And yet, knowing so little about my background, you took me into your circle and told me all your secrets. Even as we speak, homes are being raided and the remainder of the group arrested.”
Jean-Paul had trusted the wrong man, and now it would exact a high price. His life didn’t matter, but others had wives and children who needed them.
“I told you not to allow him into our inner circle.” The harsh whisper came from Pierre on Jean-Paul’s left. “What a fool you were.”
“We all were.”
“What’s going to happen to my parents?” Venom filled Pierre’s shouted whisper.
