In 1940 the German army marched into Paris. Three siblings, three completely different people, Giselle, Kamille and Marcel, suddenly find themselves face to face with the occupation, and it will change their lives forever…
It took me a little while to get into The Indigo Rebels but once I did, it became a real page turner. The historical setting and premise of the plot is very interesting and well researched (not that I’m a WWII expert), but the story is ultimately driven by Ellie Midwood’s characterisation. Her characters are well rounded individuals, with their own strengths and weakness, offering contrasting views and experiences of the occupation. This combination ultimately makes for a really enjoyable read.
I’ll be adding Ellie Midwood’s name to the list of authors I’ll definitely return to.
