Rate this:
During some of the darkest days of the Second World War, a young Frenchwoman living as a mother and housewife in England, desolate at the plight of her native and adopted countries, left her ordinary life to become a British agent, working covertly in France to aid the Resistance. Entering a murky and deadly world of espionage and double-dealing, she was betrayed to the Germans, only to endure torture by the Gestapo and the hell of the infamous concentration camp of Ravensbruck. Yet she retained a compassion, grace and spiritedness that mystified her captors; and, living to see the liberation of Europe, she kept, in the direst circumstances, her fundamental trust in goodness. Odette tells the moving and inspirational story of a woman, who, in her courage and her ability to hold on to hope, was far from ordinary.
