Winged Coronet

 
Author:
Joe Freitus

Do you like historical fiction set during World War Two? If so, the Winged Coronet by Joe Freitus weaves an engaging yarn during the tensions ramping up to D-Day.

Sister Anne Marie, a nursing Daughter of Charity, mysteriously enters the communities on the French side of the English Channel to serve their medical needs as symbolized by her winged coronet. Former German army major, Henri Reichert, has stepped in to help the Sisters of Charity, housing them in his chateaux apartments as coastal buildings are destroyed or confiscated by the occupying German forces. Herr Major Reichert, a World War One veteran and man of surprising resources, revives the injured Sister Anne Marie, who arrives unexpectedly as a casualty of a bicycle accident during a storm.

Herr Major sees that the sister is on the mend so she can carry out her stated mission in the local clinic. Meanwhile, the Gestapo watches the resentful civilians for evidence of the French Resistance, including new comer Sister Anne Marie, whom they suspect is on more than just a mission of mercy. Their suspicion puts the nun in peril, especially when skirmishes with the Allies intensify and radio broadcasts from London babble with coded messages. So the Winged Coronet unfolds a cloak-and-dagger mystery with a taboo romance between a French nun and former German officer.

The flavor of the English, French, and German accents in the writing makes the characters more distinct and real while maintaining the balance of a smooth read without distraction. Simply put, I recommend Winged Coronet as a story that both men and women would enjoy.
