Narrator Caroline Hewitt delivers a gripping performance of the young reader's edition of Purnell's bestseller about Virginia Hall, a socialite from Baltimore who worked as a spy for the Allies during WWII. Hewitt skillfully channels Hall's strong emotions at every stage of life: happiness at choosing the excitement of work over marriage, despite her mother's disdain; anger at experiencing sexism when job seeking; determination when embedding herself in the heat of battle; courage and ferocious drive while dodging danger; charisma while building an underground network in France; and disappointment at being overlooked to be an OSS field agent during the war. With impeccable French pronunciations and much bravado, Hewitt depicts Hall as the quiet, intelligent, dynamic hero she was--flaws and all.
