Summary
  • "A downed World War II bombardier's unfinished memoir and a box of letters from the French girl who saved him sets a veteran's daughter on a journey to craft a true tale of danger, courage, love, and escape.", --Provided by publisher
  • Godelieve Van Laere was a teenaged girl when she saved Lieutenant Dean Tate, who had bailed from a burning B-17 over Nazi-occupied France in 1944. They forged a friendship that would last into a new century. The story did not come to light until Susan Tate Ankeny found her late father's unfinished memoir, along with mission reports and the fake identity cards he used in his escape. Ankeny spent more than a decade tracking down anyone who had played a role in her father's story, retraced his steps in France, and discovered the story of the young woman who put her life on the line to save another's. -- adapted from back cover
