Code Name Nanette by M E Dawson is a novel that fulfills the adage that fiction reveals truth in a way that is unavailable in mere facts The story occurs against the backdrop of World War II and depicts in vivid detail, not the bloody battles, but the intimate conflict of one on one encounters that confronted the brave women who operated as spies Using all of their skills including their sexuality, at great personal risk, they cobble together important intelligence that was pivotal to the allied victory Code Name Nanette provides some insight into the personal cost of that intelligence gathering.The reader experiences Nanette and Regina not as cold, calculating automatons but as living, breathing, loving and lusting human beings In the shadow of the moment to moment risk of death or capture, they come to live at an intensity that equals and then overcomes any fears they harbor While they struggle to fight for their values and the defeat of the Axis powers, they encounter moral choices that have no simple answers They inhabit a world of grey that shades to ebony Amidst this backdrop, they live and love, fight and survive, gather and report Heroes, certainly, for the most part, unsung, and anonymous their stories deserve to be told.M.E Dawson s lyrical writing captures the beauty and the horror of war, the intensity and passion with which people experienced life Whether it is a firearm pressed to an enemy s back, or the caress of a lover s tongue, M.E paints the moment in vivid prose War makes strange bedfellows FYI, includes vivid depictions of intimacy,
