A riveting tale taking place during the German occupation of Paris during World War II. The Indigo Rebels by Ellie Midwood presents to the reader a story of three siblings, with very different lives, coming together in the most unexpected of fashions. Giselle Legrand, the eldest, is an author, living a privileged life in Paris, with little care for protocol or social convention. Kamille Blanchard, her younger sister, a widow, is caught in the shadow of her dead husband, a man who never loved or wanted her, but left her with child and was forced to do the honorable thing. Finally, there is Marcel Legrand, Giselle and Kamille’s brother, a deserter from the French Army, who finds himself mixed up with communists and the French Resistance. As the story unfolds, each sibling must decide what their path should be and how it will impact them in this troubling time.
I adore historical fiction revolving around the Resistance movements of World War II, especially the French Resistance. Midwood certainly does not disappoint as she weaves a tale of intrigue, fire, and the coming together of a people who were forced into rule by the Nazis. Out of the three, I liked Giselle the most. She wasn’t afraid to do what she thought was right, even if it meant risking her own life. I hope Miss Midwood decides to write a sequel, because I would love to know what happens to her throughout the war. The Indigo Rebels by Ellie Midwood is just as good, if not better, than any novel I have read of hers previously. She astounded me with this one, and kept me hanging on for more.
