Sisters of Night and Fog by Erika Robuck

We meet Virginia, an American in Paris and married to a French man.

We meet Violette, a British and French citizen who marries a French man.

Both are strong women based on real people and who want to do more for the war effort than staying home.  They both want to help their country fight the Nazis.

SISTERS OF NIGHT AND FOG begins with chapters of details about Virginia and Violette.  As the war rages on, we learn of what they did.

Virginia saved downed airmen, and Violette went on dangerous missions in France to help rid her beloved country of the Germans.

They both end up being arrested and sent to Ravensbruck.

You will feel the tension as we find out how the resistance carried out dangerous tasks - some successfully others not successfully.

SISTERS OF NIGHT AND FOG is well written, marvelously researched, heartbreaking, and will have you devouring every page.

You will love the two main characters and admire their strength, loyalty, and determination.  4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
