This is a historical mystery romance. It's WWII and this book tells the story of how Lexie and fiance Russell choose to do their part for the cause. It's a very interesting book which takes you back to another time, and let's us share some of the experiences that took place. This is the second book and the first book, The Gilded Curse was the book which precedes the events in this story. If you read the first book, you will become familiar with the characters and the events that lead to where they are in this book. I really felt that this book was a wonderful read. I truly enjoyed it and it was very entertaining, interesting as well as educational in some of the goings on during this difficult period in history.
