A story about the Dutch Resistance during World War II. The focus is on two young ladies who put themselves in danger to help their country.
Angels of the Resistance showed me yet another part of World War II. Being able and willing to put yourself in danger is unthinkable. Teenagers were involved in doing the same dangerous work as the adults.
Although this is historical fiction, it opened my eyes to more suffering and grief due to the Nazis. The more I learn, the angrier I get. How do people get to the mindset of the Nazis? It is scary to think about.
Angels of the Resistance isn’t a book full of excitement but more of a straightforward story of how the citizens of the Netherlands secretly fought, lived, and died during this atrocious war.
I found their methods of delivering information quite interesting. Their methods of taking people out are sad and brutal to read about.
Doing the research for this book must have been mentally exhausting. The story itself is well-written and told by Lien, only fourteen when the story begins and an integral part of the resistance.
Among all of the horror, there was also love shown between family members, and Lien met someone special along the way.
Angels of the Resistance is an informational and heartbreaking story about the human spirit and what the mind can handle. If you want to learn more about this horrible part of history, I suggest reading this book.
Thank you NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for providing this ebook to read and review.
