Rating: 5 out of 5.

Captivating, beautiful, and dangerous, Daughters of War is a historical fiction that you won’t be able to put down!

Three sisters living in France in 1944 are living with a German occupation. Hélène, Elise and Florence live together after the loss of their father. The sisters are each living their own lives, and we get to know each one’s personality throughout the story. As the story progresses, we find that each sister has to make decisions and actions that could put everyone at risk.

I thought the author did a fantastic job of bringing details to life. I felt so swept into the story with her atmospheric writing. The horrors of the war were brought to life, and the fear and danger felt by the people was tangible. Overall, I would highly recommend this to any reader that enjoys WWII historical fiction!
