Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse
This was a great read to start out this challenge. Well written with a complex cast of characters. Tight pacing with a strong air of mystery and conspiracy. Like many novels set during WWII, there's a desire for freedom and justice that is defeated at every turn. There is grief and tragedy, horrible things that happen in spite of complex efforts to set things right. A great choice for fans of historical fiction.
