Description

Rose Justice is a young pilot with the Air Transport Auxiliary during the Second World War. On her way back from a semi-secret flight in the waning days of the war, Rose is captured by the Germans and ends up in Ravensbruck, the notorious Nazi women's concentration camp. There, she meets an unforgettable group of women, including a once glamorous and celebrated French detective novelist whose Jewish husband and three young sons have been killed; a resilient young girl who was a human guinea pig for Nazi doctors trying to learn how to treat German war wounds; and a Nachthexen, or Night Witch, a female fighter pilot and military ace for the Soviet air force. These damaged women must bond together to help each other survive.

In this companion volume to the critically acclaimed novel Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein continues to explore themes of friendship and loyalty, right and wrong, and unwavering bravery in the face of indescribable evil.

About Elizabeth Wein

Elizabeth Wein was born in New York, and grew up in England, Jamaica and Pennsylvania. It is her love of flying that partly inspired the idea for Code Name Verity.

Born in New York City in 1964, Elizabeth moved to England when she was three, and Jamaica when she was six. Elizabeth loved Jamaica and as a child was fluent in Jamaican patois; but in 1973 her parents separated, and Elizabeth and her siblings ended up back in the US living with their mother Carol Flocken in Harrisburg, PA. When Carol died in a car accident in 1978, Carol's parents took the children in and raised them.

Elizabeth went to Yale University, spent a work-study year back in England, and then spent seven years getting a PhD in Folklore at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where she held a Javits Fellowship. In 1995 Elizabeth moved to England with new husband Tim, and then to Scotland in 2000. Sasha Pick was born in America and moved to Oxford, England, as a child. She trained at the Central School of Speech & Drama and has had leading roles in film, TV and radio. Some of her work includes: the TV shows Casualty and The Bill, the feature length documentary Road to Guantanamo and the longest running radio soap The Archers.
