|display_description||Readers know of the bravery, boldness, and spirit shown by the thousands of soldiers who fought valiantly during World War II. Lesser known, perhaps, but equally dramatic were the roles that women played in the conflict, both as support from home and as part of the fight near the front lines. For Such a Time, the first novel in Elyse Larson's WOMEN OF VALOR series explores the lives of two cousins--one French, the other American--who find the courage to face danger and betrayal in occupied France during at the height of the war. Giselle Munier and Jean Thornton are more like sisters than cousins, having spent many summers together through their parents' travels. But with the outbreak of World War II, both women's lives take a dramatic turn. Jean joins the American Red Cross, assigned to a sprawling military hospital in Wales. Giselle, active in the French Resistance, has been betrayed and arrested by the Nazis. Hearing of her cousin's plight, Jean knows she must try to rescue her cousin, no matter how ill-advised the mission seems. Both women will learn far more than they ever imagined about courage, trust, and forgiveness before their harrowing experience is over.|
