1940. Facing a seemingly endless war, fifteen-year-old Louisa Adair wants to fight back, make a difference, do something—anything to escape the Blitz and the ghosts of her parents, who were killed by enemy action. But when she accepts a position caring for an elderly German woman in the small village of Windyedge, Scotland, it hardly seems like a meaningful contribution. Still, the war feels closer than ever in Windyedge, where Ellen McEwen, a volunteer driver with the Royal Air Force, and Jamie Beaufort-Stuart, a flight leader for the 648 Squadron, are facing a barrage of unbreakable code and enemy attacks they can’t anticipate. Their paths converge when a German pilot lands in Windyedge under mysterious circumstances and plants a key that leads Louisa to an unparalleled discovery: an Enigma machine that translates German code. Louisa, Ellen, and Jamie must work together to unravel a puzzle that could turn the tide of the war? but doing so will put them directly in the cross-hairs of the enemy. Featuring beloved characters from Code Name Verity and The Pearl Thief, as well as a remarkable new voice, this brilliant, breathlessly plotted novel by award-winning author Elizabeth Wein is a must-read.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Angela Ness’s accents add to the atmosphere of this historical YA novel set on the coast of Scotland in 1940…Narrating a story with multiple points of view, an international crew of fighter pilots, and even the occasional song, Ness has her work cut out for her. The developing friendships amid stark reminders of war make this a gripping listen.” AudioFile
“A soaring success.” Kirkus Reviews
