With The Girl Who Fell From The Sky, Simon Mawer has written a tense, gripping story of wartime intelligence and love. Marian Sutro is an outsider: the daughter of a diplomat, naive yet too clever for her own good. Now recruited to go undercover in wartime France, her official mission demands that she must act as a Resistance courier.
The Girl Who Fell From The Sky is hugely evocative of the streets of wartime Paris, and the dangerous excitement of avoiding the Gestapo. It is not only a pacy and thrilling story of jeopardy and adventure, but a moving meditation on patriotism, betrayal and the limits of love. A worthy successor to the much-acclaimed The Glass Room.
