In 1944, two trailblazing female journalists, Ella and Danni, board a ship to Normandy to report the unfolding war effort. Faced with the trauma of experiencing war-torn Normandy, these women, determined to succeed, must also battle gender prejudice in their fight to bring their much-needed press coverage back home. When tragedy strikes and Danni, tortured by guilt, becomes obsessed in her quest to find a missing colleague, it is anyone’s guess if the three will make it home alive.
Rife with the realities of war, this gripping and heartwarming tale draws on the power of female friendship and camaraderie. Not only did I find it empowering, but it also filled me with optimism—it’s a story that will long stay in my memory.
