JOSEPHINE: SINGER DANCER SOLDIER SPY is an amazing Historical Fiction Novel about the inimitable Josephine Baker.
I knew very little about her amazing life and this fictional story about real life events really opened my eyes to the life of this wonderful and brave woman. The bravery she showed during the second World War and for the French Resistance really left me in awe.
Josephine Baker grew up in America at a time when the country was racially segregated and KKK activities were rampant. As a child, where an infected foot where an amputation was threatened, she could have had a different course in her life. But that was not in her future. She was meant to do so much more. Josephine moves to France where she becomes a very rich and famous entertainer in the midst of the roaring twenties. Her popularity was put to use to aid her adopted country during the time Hitler is rising into power.
McGinness wrote with such detail in this well researched historical fiction novel. I was taken back in time with her rich and vivid detail of the time and of Josephine Baker’s heroic feats of courage and bravery for an important cause. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book that had me hooked from the very first page. Well done in this amazing story of a woman everyone should read about.
