In 1917, Evelyn Marche is just one of many women who has been widowed by the war. A British nurse trapped in German-occupied Brussels, she spends her days working at a hospital and her nights as a waitress in her aunt and uncle's café. Eve also has a carefully guarded secret keeping her in constant danger: She's a spy working for a Belgian resistance group in league with the British Secret Service. When a British plane crashes in Brussels Park, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to discover she recognizes the badly injured pilot. British RFC Captain Simon Forrester is now a prisoner of war, and Eve knows he could be shot as a spy at any time. She risks her own life to hide him from the Germans, but as the danger mounts and the secrets between them grow, their chance of survival looks grim. And even if they do make it out alive, the truth of what lies between them may be more than any love can overcome.

Good WW1 read though rather complicated story line I enjoyed

Overall I really loved this book. I ended up caring so much for not only Eve, but her family and friends. While we mainly see things from her perspective we occasionally see things from others point of view as well. For me this always make it so much more enjoyable because we get to see more of what is happening the place that we are, and to see how others are dealing with the same type of struggles. The romance was a side part of the story once again and I love that in books so much! Instead the focus was on Eve's work as a nurse and a spy and trying to find her younger siblings all while keeping herself and her family out of harms way. When it came to finding out who was making things difficult for those in the spy group, I was surprised by who it was and was pretty upset that they would do such a thing. For those worried about the religious parts of this book, I hardly noticed any mention of God or religion, until we got to the end and even then it was brief. This is more of a story about the struggles faced during WWI and how some people might have survived.
