Kate Quinn’s The Alice Network
“Poetry is like passion–it should not be merely pretty; it should overwhelm and bruise.”
This book. The Alice Network is an incredibly captivating story about two women and their quests for justice after WWII. One was a spy during the first and second World War and the other is a 22 year old girl looking for her cousin who was lost after WWII. The two go on a journey making this story part mystery, part historical fiction, and all women empowerment. The characters are developed so fully that I feel like I know them personally. And, most of this book is based on fact, which is so cool to read as a women who rarely hears about women’s roles during the anti-Nazi efforts. It was a book that I just didn’t want to end, it was that good.
