As a little girl raised amid the hardships of Michigan's Copper Country, Fenna Vos learned to focus on her own survival. Ultimately, controlling her surroundings and eluding traps of every kind helps her keep a lingering trauma at bay. Recruited by British intelligence during World War II, she uses her skills of magic and misdirection to develop gadgets for prisoners of war and escapees to aid in the fight against the Nazis. I was drawn into Feena's journey from a young child being raised by her father to the resourceful, courageous woman she becomes using all her skills to save the lives of those she loves. Inspired by those inventive people behind the scenes who worked tirelessly to thwart the Nazis, Kristina McMorris weaves a riveting, action packed tale that kept me on the edge of my seat especially during Fenna's perilous mission to the Netherlands. One of the best historical fiction books I've read all year!

Description


From the New York Times bestselling author of Sold On A Monday--over a million copies sold --comes a sweeping World War II tale of an illusionist whose recruitment by British intelligence sets her on a perilous, heartrending path.

As a little girl raised amid the hardships of Michigan's Copper Country, Fenna Vos learned to focus on her own survival. That ability sustains her even now as the Second World War rages in faraway countries. Though she performs onstage as the assistant to an unruly escape artist, behind the curtain she's the mastermind of their act. Ultimately, controlling her surroundings and eluding traps of every kind helps her keep a lingering trauma at bay.

Yet for all her planning, Fenna doesn't foresee being called upon by British military intelligence. Tasked with designing escape aids to thwart the Germans, MI9 seeks those with specialized skills for a war nearing its breaking point. Fenna reluctantly joins the unconventional team as an inventor. But when a test of her loyalty draws her deep into the fray, she discovers no mission is more treacherous than escaping one's past.

Inspired by stunning true accounts, The Ways We Hide is a gripping story of love and loss, the wars we fight--on the battlefields and within ourselves--and the courage found in unexpected places.
