Ellie's writing is beautiful and compelling, as always, and I was so swept up by these characters. There are familiar characters from book one in the story, too, and tied in brilliantly with the original, but it can still be enjoyed as a standalone.
Ellie is my favorite historical fiction writer, hands down. I think what sets her apart from the others is her personal touch to the stories--I always get this strange sensation when I'm reading her books, that an old friend is whispering the story in my ear and it's only for me to enjoy.
Ellie's knowledge of WW2 history really shines through, the setting was incredible in this story. But the story in this one--so full of intrigue and secrets, and so perfectly tied together - is what makes the book, in my opinion. I loved the characters; they felt genuine and relatable.
I would definitely give this one 5 stars (more if I could!). If you're a fan of historical fiction and rich, layered stories, then you MUST check out Ellie's books! The Lyon Affair is a masterpiece in its own right and I hope I don't have to wait long for book #3!
There are some complex characters, including my favorite, Father Yves. The unlikely priest has a dark past, and I was drawn to his story, in particular. It was a fascinating journey back to this dangerous era, filled with acts of bravery and sacrifice.
The author is an accomplished storyteller, despite occasional awkward sentence structure and a few modern expressions like “man up” that don’t sound authentic to the early 1940s.
Again, THE LYON AFFAIR takes place in 1940/1941 France, where resistance to the hated Boches-infiltrating Nazis comes with all manner of techniques––cunning codes, heavy training, and dark, secret backgrounds. We see a caring priest with a past he would rather forget, a naive young woman trying to overcome her mixed heritage for which she has always been ashamed, two resistance fighters who, amid German aggression, discover who they truly are, and of course throughout while facing vicious Gestapo tactics and deeds, all manner of clever schemes are hatched to destroy their enemy. Another winner

The Lyon Affair is a book rich in mystery, intrigue and drama, a true page-turner. To date, this is my favourite Ellie Midwood series and I eagerly look forward to the next book. If you love historical fiction, I highly recommended this talented author.
This is the second book in the series and I strongly suggest starting with the first book. I am eagerly anticipating the third book!
I'll continue to check out Ellie Midwood's work because I get the impression she hasn't even hit the spot yet.
