About this book
"Code Name Verity" is an emotionally rich and elegantly plotted novel set against a background of espionage in World War 2. Having been captured by the Gestapo after a vital mission in France goes wrong, Verity writes her account of her life for her captors. Truth or lies, honour or betrayal, everything is put to the test.
Only in wartime could a stalwart lass from Manchester rub shoulders with a Scottish aristocrat. But then a vital mission goes wrong, and one of the friends has to bail out of a faulty plane over France. She is captured by the Gestapo and becomes a prisoner of war.
