Description

Please note that we will only grant requests to Canadian residents.

Gripping and emotionally rich, this novel is an unforgettable account of friendship and loyalty, heroism and bravery.

Two young women from totally different backgrounds are thrown together during World War Two: one a working-class girl from Manchester, the other a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a wireless operator. Yet, whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted to each other. But then a vital mission goes wrong, and one of the friends has to bail out of a faulty plane over France. She is captured by the Gestapo and becomes a prisoner of war. The story begins in "Verity's" own words, as she writes her account for her captors. Truth or lies? Honour or betrayal? Everything they've ever believed in is put to the test...

ELIZABETH WEIN was born in New York, and grew up in England, Jamaica and Pennsylvania. She has her pilot's license, and it is her love of flying that partly inspired the idea for Code Name Verity.
