Three Women. Two Sides. One War to End all Wars.When a war like no one has even seen rages through Europe in 1914, three women are set on a collision course with history, and one of them will pay the ultimate price. As one of the first female pilots, Alouette Richer is determined to join the war effort. She gets her chance when she is recruited by Captain Ladoux, head of France's Secret Service. But is she willing to sacrifice everything for her country? Marthe Cnockaert's day job as a nurse requires her to help anyone in need, including the enemy. But at night she wanders the darkened streets of Belgium as a courier for Allied Intelligence. Can she keep up her dual roles without anyone finding out her secret?

But the naive dancer is being set up for the most dangerous performance of her life. If you like Kate Quinn's The Alice Network, Martha Hall Kelly's Lost Roses, and Aimie K.
