Series Sunday: The Girl from the Resistance

(Dutch Girls #1) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is The Girl from the Resistance, the first book in the Dutch Girl series by Imogen Matthews. The setting is 1941 Nazi-occupied Holland. Nazis break down the front door of 18-year-old Trudi's home and seize the Jewish couple hiding in her attic. Their two little girls, Rosy and Louisa, are heartbroken. It is Trudi's mission to get them to a safe house under the guise of a German nurse escorting children to a hospital. It is a classic story of escape.

The Girl from the Resistance was just okay. I appreciate the history told in fiction. The slight suspense of getting Rosy and Louisa from the hiding place in the attic to safety was not nearly as nail-biting as it could have been though. Perhaps the series will develop better but I won't continue since the characters were not memorable after I turned the last page. 

Disclaimer: An advance copy was received directly from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Opinions are my own and would be the same if I spent my hard-earned coins.
