When the Germans begin bombing London in World War II, Betty is determined to do her part. Instead of running air raid drills like most girls her age, she lies about her age and trains to become a spy. Now known by her secret agent persona, Adele Blanchard, she finds herself parachuting over German-occupied France under the cover of darkness to join the secret Resistance movement. Prepared to die for her cause, Adele wasn’t expecting to make a new best friend in her fellow agent or fall for a handsome American pilot. With the brutality of war ever present, can Adele dare to dream of a future where the world is at peace and she is free to live and love of her own accord? -Goodreads

My Thoughts:
 The first thing that caught my eye of the Violins of Autumn was the cover!! It's so pretty!! I really like the swirling colors in the background. The plot of this book sounds really interesting too..I love historical fiction books and this one sounds awesome because the main character is a spy! Can't wait to check this one out :)

Well what are you waiting for this week?? What do you think of my choice?? Comment below!!

I'm not a fan of historical fiction, but the genre seems to be well-loved by my fellow bloggers, I may have to give it another shot!
