I always enjoy historical fiction and would really like to get back to reading more of it. Sisters of the Resistance is set in the Paris Resistance movement of WWII. There are alternating timelines between 1944 and 1947. I admit to finding this confusing at times but I still enjoyed the story.
Gabby and Yvette are sisters who are as different as night and day. Gabby is the concierge of an apartment building while Yvette, looking for more, is recruited by Catherine Dior into the Resistance. Despite Gabby always trying to avoid trouble it isn’t long before she is working for the Resistance as well. The two find themselves in increasingly dangerous times.
For me the novel would have worked better if it had gone from 1944 to 1947 in order without switching back and forth. That being said it was interesting look into WWII and to see strong and capable women contributing in valuable ways to the war effort. The one thing that disappointed me was I would have liked if the story had delved deeper into the life of Catherine Dior.
All in all an enjoyable book. This eleven hour audio is very well done and narrated by Saskia Maarleveld who I always enjoy listening to.
