When We Fall by Carolyn Kirby

Two women and an airman with ice blue eyes are in jeopardy, and at the heart of this smart World War II thriller by Carolyn Kirby. Vee Katchatourian is a pilot ferrying new aircraft to RAF airfields in England when she meets Polish-born flier Stefan Bergel and falls in love. Meanwhile, in German-occupied Poland, Ewa Hartmann, a member of the resistance, is mourning the loss of her lover Stefan – but then he suddenly reappears. Stefan carries a lot of baggage in his flight bag. Soviet forces captured him and during his captivity he made a catastrophic decision. His guilt drives him to ask the two women to help him expose the truth behind the Katyn massacre in 1940. It’s chocks away for a tale of love, loyalty, betrayal and a quest to expose one of the war’s worst atrocities and biggest secrets. Read our full review here.
