She risked everything for her country, but now she’s fighting for her life.
A gripping tale of love and espionage in Occupied France, based on true events.
February 1933: When her aunt gifts her two hundred pounds, twenty-year-old Nancy Wake embarks on a world cruise. Afterwards, she becomes a journalist and finds work in Paris. The city is glamorous, brimming with journalists, artists, and refugees. While travelling across Europe on assignments, she catches the eye of wealthy industrialist Henri Fiocca, but romance is the last thing on her mind. Later, when they meet again, destiny intervenes. But as the clouds of war swarm over Europe, German troops are on the march. Horrified when she witnesses Nazis whipping Jews on Vienna’s streets, Nancy vows to stop them if she ever has the chance.
When Paris falls, an encounter with a British officer draws her into the heart of an escape network and the French Resistance. Nancy is determined to fight for the liberation of France. Soon she is caught in a deadly game of espionage. Meanwhile, the Gestapo hunt for a woman they know is working as a spy and courier for the Resistance. They call her, The White Mouse.
As the iron fist of the enemy tightens, Nancy and Henri face a heartbreaking decision.
What happens when doing the right thing is also the road to ruin?
