August 2022 Book of the Month

1t’s 1943, Edda is 14 and living in Velp in the Netherlands under German occupation. Young as she is, she is already risking her life working for the resistance, delivering newsletters and, more dangerous still, helping US airmen stranded behind German lines.

With typical economy and directness, Tom Palmer tells her story brilliantly, describing Edda’s heroism plus the fear and misery experienced every day by all those trying to live their lives as war rages around them with the same eye-level detail and insight. As often in Palmer’s books, this is inspired by a real person and somehow the story of this couragous young girl is even more remarkable when he reveals in the concluding pages that Edda van Heemstra grew up to be Audrey Hepburn, one of the most famous of all the Hollywood stars, though also a longtime ambassador for UNICEF.

Written for dyslexia specialist Barrington Stoke, the book is accessible to all readers and for many it is likely to prove unputdownable.
