World War II certainly had its share of deserving heroes and heroines, many of whom have received their due recognition. But how many civilian women can say they saved the lives of at least 250 downed airmen in just over two years?
Code Name Lily takes you on an unforgettable journey from Belgium, into France, and over the Pyrenees Mountains into Spain. An extremely clever and persuasive young Belgian nurse outsmarts the Nazis time and again, risking her life if she is caught, but protecting every airman she successfully aids to evade the Germans.
Code Name Lily is based on the true story of Micheline “Michou” Dumon-Ugeux, a legend in the Comet Line escape network from 1940-1944 who went only by the name of Lily. You too will fall in love with Lily. She may have stood only five feet tall, but she was a giant of a woman.
Julien Ayotte is the author of five novels, including the award-winning Flower of Heaven and Dangerous Bloodlines. Code Name Lily is his first historical fiction based on a true story. His mother emigrated as a child to the United States from Belgium just after World War I, so the themes and places in this book hold special meaning for the author.
Julien’s other novels include A Life Before and Disappearance, all Amazon best-sellers and award-winners with hundreds of 5-star reviews. To learn more about Julien and his books, visit his website, www.julienayotte.com.
Julien is giving away a print copy of his new novel Code Name Lily. Just leave a comment on this post and a winner will be chosen at random next week.
Hope to see you on Saturday, December 1 at the RI Author Expo!
