Publisher's Summary

Inspired by Picasso’s great masterpiece Guernica, New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards returns with a riveting story of intrigue, deception and bravery in the face of war…

On an April day in 1937, the sky opens and fire rains down upon the small Spanish town of Guernica. Seventeen-year-old Sibi and her family are caught up in the horror. Griff, an American military attaché, pulls Sibi from the wreckage, and it’s only the first time he saves her life in a span of hours. When Germany claims no involvement in the attack, insisting the Spanish Republic was responsible, Griff guides Sibi to lie to Nazi officials. If she or her sisters reveal that they saw planes bearing swastikas, the gestapo will silence them—by any means necessary.  

As war begins to rage across Europe, Sibi joins the underground resistance, secretly exchanging information with Griff. But as the scope of Germany’s ambitions becomes clear, maintaining the facade of a Nazi-sympathizer becomes ever more difficult. And as Sibi is drawn deeper into a web of secrets, she must find a way to outwit an enemy that threatens to decimate her family once and for all.

Masterfully rendered and vividly capturing one of the most notorious episodes in history, The Girl from Guernica is an unforgettable testament to the bonds of family and the courage of women in wartime.

Wow

What an interesting book. I loved it and didn’t want it to end. The narrator was just great and the author too. I think this book is the best of hers that I have read. If you love World War II books you will not be disappointed.

OMG — edge of your seat!

I have read/listened to about 300 books of World War II historical fiction. This was among the best. This book has it all. I was holding my breath when the heroine held her breath; it affected me viscerally. I wanted it to end, but I didn’t want it to end. It has everything. Fast paced action, family love, history, art, a strong female lead and a little bit of romance in for fun. Read this! You won’t be disappointed.

Better to read than listen

I do enjoy Karen Robards' books because she does have interesting plots and characters. This one reminded me why I usually stick to reading Robards versus listening. I lost track of how many sentences started with Sibi's heart freezing, speeding up, racing etc. Listening to a story can really emphasize phrases that a writer might overuse. It's easier to gloss over them in print. The narrator did a fine job overall.
