Description

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by BuzzFeed · BookBub · BookTrib · and more!

Two women, two countries. Nothing in common but a call to fight.

A heart-stopping new novel based on the extraordinary true stories of an American socialite and a British secret agent whose stunning acts of courage collide in the darkest hours of World War II.

1940. In a world newly burning with war, and in spite of her American family’s wishes, Virginia d’Albert-Lake decides to stay in occupied France with her French husband. She’s sure that if they keep their heads down, they’ll survive. But is surviving enough?

Nineteen-year-old Violette Szabo has seen the Nazis’ evil up close and is desperate to fight them. But when she meets the man who’ll change her life only for tragedy to strike, Violette’s adrift. Until she enters the radar of Britain’s secret war organization - the Special Operations Executive - and a new fire is lit in her as she decides just how much she’s willing to risk to enlist.

As Virginia and Violette navigate resistance, their clandestine deeds come to a staggering halt when they are brought together at Ravensbrück concentration camp.

The decisions they make will change their lives, and the world, forever.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Violette and Virginia are two women whose stories needed to be told, particularly now that most of the people who fought in WWII are gone. Robuck has done their memory great honor." —BookPage (starred review)

"Following her triumph The Invisible Woman, Erika Robuck returns with an even more powerful book.  Inspired by true stories, this incredible book tells of American Virginia and Violette, each swept up in the current of World War II and forced to choose whether to risk everything for the things in which she believes.  Their lives collide in powerful and irrevocable ways that will hold readers spellbound… Sisters of Night and Fog stands head and shoulders above for its meticulous research, heart pounding storytelling, compelling relationships and important message. Bravo!" —Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman with the Blue Star 

"A novel of duty, sacrifice, fate, and hope, set in a world steeped in courage and madness. Searing, powerful, and told through the lens of two overlooked historical figures who gave up nearly everything to fight against tyranny in one of the 20th century’s darkest hours, Erika Robuck's Sisters of Night and Fog soars. Two women—connected at the outset by fate, chance and little else—hurtle toward a tragic date with destiny in the infamous Ravensbruck Concentration Camp, where prisoners are starved and tortured, and not all will make it out alive. Based very closely on the true stories of two incredible 20th century women in the shadows, who risked their lives to save others, this novel, devastating in its truth and power, will break your heart and stay with you long after you’ve turned the final page." —Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names and The Forest of Vanishing Stars

Excellent story, painful narration.

The story, based on several real characters, is powerful and haunting. The author brings them to life and ensures that you will think about them long after the book has finished. The narrator has a nice voice, but her English accents are execrable. Surely Audible has someone who has actually heard real accents who could have said "Stop!". The French and German accented English were just as bad. I almost gave up listening early on, but the story had me hooked. The narrator would have been better if she just stuck to her real American accent.
