Narrator Saskia Maarleveld brings her notable talent for accents to this WWII novel set in Lisbon, Portugal, and Nazi-occupied Lyon, France. She performs dialogue with several realistic accents, though she maintains an American accent for the narrative sections. The story focuses on Ava, an American employee of the Library of Congress who is working for the U.S. government in Lisbon, and Elaine, who is working with the Resistance in France. Their lives are very different. Ava lives in comparable comfort seasoned with wariness and occasional real danger, while Elaine lives under the brutal Nazi regime and is constantly at mortal risk. Eventually, their lives intersect. Maarleveld's narration, including her fine work with character voices, keeps the listener's attention.
