Description
Barely out of school and doing her bit for the British war effort, Marian Sutro has one quality that makes her stand out—she is a native French speaker. It is this that attracts the attention of the Special Operations Executive, which trains agents to operate in occupied Europe. Drawn into this secret world at nineteen, she finds herself undergoing commando training, attending a school for spies, and, ultimately, parachuting into France to join the Wordsmith resistance network. But there's more to Marian's mission than meets the eye; her mission has been hijacked by another secret organization that wants her to go to Paris and persuade a friend—a research physicist—to join the Allied war effort.A fascinating blend of fact and fiction, Trapeze is both an old-fashioned adventure story and a modern exploration of a young woman's growth into adulthood.

It is this that attracts the attention of the SOE, the Special Operations Executive, which trains agents to operate in occupied Europe. Drawn into this strange, secret world at the age of nineteen, she finds herself undergoing commando training, attending a "school for spies," and ultimately, one autumn night, parachuting into France from an Royal Air Force bomber to join the Wordsmith resistance network. But there's more to Marian's mission than meets the eye of her SOE controllers; her mission has been hijacked by another secret organization that wants her to go to Paris and persuade a friend-a research physicist-to join the Allied war effort. The outcome could affect the whole course of the war. A fascinating blend of fact and fiction, Trapeze is both an old-fashioned adventure story and a modern exploration of a young woman's growth into adulthood. There is violence, and there is love. There is death and betrayal, deception and revelation. But above all there is Marian Sutro, an ordinary young woman who, like her real-life counterparts in the SOE, did the most extraordinary things at a time when the ordinary was not enough., At the age of 19, fluent-French-speaking Briton Marian Sutro is recruited for service in the Special Operations Executive during World War II, only to find that another secret organization wants her to infiltrate Paris to persuade a research physicist to join the Allied war effort., DLCengDLCYDXBTCTABDXYDXCPIH7UPZ, Digital content provided by hoopla., Downloadable audiobook., F MAWER, France, Historical fiction., MWT10024471, Mawer, Simon., Midwesteengrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :Other Press,c2012., OCLC Holdings Updated 20130919, Read by Kate Reading., Reading, Kate.|Narrator, Spy stories., Streaming audiobook., Trapeze /Simon Mawer., TrapezeSimon Mawer., Unabridged., World War, 1939-1945, Young women, Z0VIA, [United States] :Blackstone Audio, Inc. :Made available through hoopla,2012., audios, computerc, data file, digital, hoopla digital., online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-09-15mn-, spoken wordspw
