This week we have THREE copies A Woman of No Importance by acclaimed biographer Sonia Purnell.

It tells the incredible untold story of Virginia Hall, an American woman with a wooden leg who infiltrated Occupied France for the SOE and became the Gestapo’s most wanted Allied spy.

In 1942, the Gestapo would stop at nothing to track down a mysterious ‘limping lady’ who was fighting for the freedom of France.

The Nazi chiefs issued a simple but urgent command:

‘She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her.’

This is the epic tale of an heiress who was determined that a hunting accident would not define her existence; a young woman who gambled her life to fight for the freedoms she believed in; an espionage novice who helped to light the flame of French Resistance.

With Mother’s Day approaching, we’re celebrating all inspirational women. Tell us – who is the most important woman in your life and why (25 words or fewer). The three entries we like best will win a copy of this fantastic book!.

Entries close midday Monday 13 May 2019, Sydney/Melbourne time.

THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES! WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED BY EMAIL AND ANNOUNCED IN OUR NEWSLETTER.
