Sisters of the Resistance: A Novel of Catherine Dior’s Paris Spy Network was an enjoyable book if you were looking for romantic chick lit, but as far as historical fiction goes it was a little lacking. The book is just over four hundred pages long and I don’t feel that the author scratched the surface of the activities of the members of the resistance. Instead, much time was spent reading about how the characters feel and how frightened they were that they might be captured, tortured, and killed. I feel that the triplicate of fear was repeated far too many times in the book and as the reader, you can remember that they feared getting caught. The most intriguing part of the book was the author’s write-up about the book and the research she went through. It’s a shame she wasn’t able to use it in a way that made the book more interesting and inclusive of the resistance activities. The book is a good read for the beach, or poolside, but overall not a very interesting work of historical fiction.
