Book Review: Flame of Resistance by Tracy Groot

Flame of Resistance by Tracy Groot is an excellent World War II novel about a French Resistance movement called Flame.  This novel provides a little bit of a love story, a little bit of God, a little bit of action, and a little bit of history.  Germany has invaded France and there are numerous resistance cells all over the country.  Michel Rousseua is the leader of one such group, Flame.  He’s presented with an unusual opportunity when a Dutch-American pilot crashes in France and is willing to be an agent for Flame.  The pilot is paired up with a young woman who has been forced into prostitution in order to survive.  Together  they unravel a great story!

This was a good read, however, it was a little tough to follow for a couple of chapters until you wrap your head around who is who.  After I got a grasp of the characters, I really enjoyed this book.  It really got me interested in WW II history and I enjoyed the author’s note at the end.  This lead me to a little research on my own.

I recommend Flame of Resistance to history lovers as well as mystery and romance readers.  As I said, it was a good read.

I was given a copy of Flame of Resistance by Tyndale Publishing for review.  This review is my honest opinion.
