'A compulsively readable account of a little-known yet
extraordinary historical figure - Lawhon's best book to date.' *
Kirkus Reviews, *STARRED* *
'Ariel Lawhon delivers in Code Name Helene. This fully animated portrait of Nancy Wake - underground operative, charmer in red lipstick, loving wife, and hard-hitting woman of her times, will fascinate readers of World War II history and thrill fans of fierce, brash, independent women, alike. A stark exploration of the remarkable difference one person, willing to rise in the face of fear, can make.' -- Lisa Wingate, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Before We Were Yours
'Magnificent ... Lawhon carries us into the heart of the French resistance [and] into the mind of a badass heroine with uncanny instincts who takes on the Nazis and men's arrogant sexism with uncommon bravado ... Propulsive ... Emotionally stirring... Even long after the last page is turned, this astonishing story of Wake's accomplishments will hold readers in its grip.' * Booklist, starred review *
