More about Hunt Of The Kite:

Coker’s novel tells the story of Anna whose future in medicine was one only a few women could aspire to. But in the spring of 1940 as Hitler raced to Paris, her dreams disappeared. Despite her father's efforts to mask their past for 40 years, the reports from Poland and the Netherlands revealed even the Sorbonne was no longer a safe place. Departing in the night her journey home takes four years, blending into the underclass of France, hiding in plain sight. Anna finds security in the arms of the enemy and for a time, love. When this is lost, she survives a cat and mouse existence deteriorating into destitution, prostitution and eventually murder for revenge. Joining the Resistance in desperation, she is recruited by British and American Special Operations, returning to France for an assassination mission of a key German commander on D-Day. Competing priorities have the Allies working against each other, one side trying to stop Anna, the other supporting her mission. Anna must thread the needle in one pass with little hope for escape.
