Contending valiantly against the Nazi threat in war-torn Europe, two sisters unite to thwart a sinister plan, in this third book in Elyse Larson’s Women of Valor series.

When Marge Emerson uncovers a diabolical Nazi plot she is secretly reassigned to a medical post in France. There she meets a conscientious objector whose outspoken belief in God challenges her own fragile faith. When David shares his desire to return to Europe after the war and build an orphanage for Germany’s homeless children, Marge is drawn to this selfless, compassionate man. Meanwhile, Marge’s sister, Em, a war correspondent, is recruited for intelligence work by an American secret service agency and quickly becomes involved in an intricate web of espionage. When Marge and Em are unexpectedly reunited in France, they attempt a daring rescue.

About the Narrator

Vanessa Benjamin (a.k.a. Roe Kendall) is a native of the British Isles. Some twenty-five years ago she moved to the United States with her family and set down roots in Maryland. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London, receiving their silver medal as well as the Sir Emile Littler and Caryl Brahms awards. Benjamin has performed on stage in the Washington, DC, area for several years and at many venues and has performed at the Kennedy Center as Mrs. Schubert in the long-running show Shear Madness. An accomplished actress and narrator, she has recorded over two hundred books. Her work as a freelance voice-over artist and narrator has led her in many interesting directions, from technical government materials to eighteenth-century romance novels to hotel advertising, but narrating books is what she really enjoys. “I really love playing all the parts when I narrate a book. It’s an adventure, a challenge, and above all I feel that I learn something new with each book I read. I do a lot of reading for the Library of Congress’ Blind and Physically Handicapped program, and it is so rewarding for me especially when I get a letter from a patron; it’s a great service for the listener.”
