A Photojournalist Risks Her Life to Save Children
Journalist Nellie Wilkerson has spent the bulk of the war in London, photographing pilots taking off and landing—and she’s bored. She jumps at the chance to go to France, where the Allied forces recently landed. She enlists Jean-Paul Breslau of the French underground to take her to the frontlines. On the journey, they come upon an orphanage where nuns shelter children with disabilities. Can they help save them before the Nazis come to liquidate it?
And to Jean-Paul’s mother. But he couldn’t dwell on that. They had a problem right in front of them. “Don’t say anything more, Pierre.” Thankfully, Luc had the good sense to stay quiet.
This is where their training came in. If they didn’t open their mouths, they couldn’t incriminate themselves.
Henri swung around and came nose to nose with Jean-Paul. “Let Pierre talk all he wants.
We don’t need confessions. I have all the information they need.”
“Are they paying you?”
Jean-Paul’s hasty question got him a slap on the side of his head from Henri, multiplying the stars in the sky. “That’s enough from you.”
“I hope it’s enough for you. Will it bring you everything you’ve ever dreamed of? Can you live with yourself and the blood that’s on your hands?”
Henri sucker punched Jean-Paul in the stomach. His breath rushed out, doubling him over.
“I said enough. No more talking. Not from any of you.” He turned to the Germans. “Come and get them. And there’s sure to be a nice gift for you inside the box as well. Now it’s time to deal with these traitors.”
