I recommend this book to everyone! As well as to people who don't prefer historical fiction. Starred review from April 16, Wein The Empty Kingdom serves up a riveting and often brutal tale of WWII action and espionage with a powerful friendship at its core. Captured Scottish spy Queenie has agreed to tell her tale—and reveal any confidential information she knows—in exchange for relief from being tortured by Nazis.
Wein balances the horrors of war against genuine heroics, delivering a well-researched and expertly crafted adventure. Ages 14—up. Agent: Ginger Clark, Curtis Brown.
In a cell in Nazi-occupied France, a young woman writes. Like Scheherezade, to whom she is compared by the SS officer in charge of her case, she dribbles out information--"everything I can remember about the British War Effort"--in exchange for time and a reprieve from torture.
But her story is more than a listing of wireless codes or aircraft types.
Instead, she describes her friendship with Maddie, the pilot who flew them to France, as well as the real details of the British War Effort: the breaking down of class barriers, the opportunities, the fears and victories not only of war but of daily life. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. He has said that I can have as much paper as I need.
But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France — an Allied Invasion of Two.
We are a sensational team. While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrck, the notorious women's concentration camp.
Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate that's in store for her? The narrator breaks out of the story about Maddie and Beryl to say that she broke the pencil point laughing at one of her own jokes.
We'll say this for the narrator: she hasn't lost her sense of humor. When they go to help the pilot—we're back in —Maddie and Beryl discover that the pilot is a girl. This inspires Maddie to think she can make the leap from driving a motorbike to flying an airplane.
The narrator names another type of aircraft: the Lysander , which is what Maddie was flying when she dropped the narrator in France several weeks ago.
We learn that Maddie was supposed to land the Lysander, but couldn't because it was struck by antiaircraft fire on the way into France.
Maddie insisted the narrator parachute out before she tried to land the flaming aircraft. The narrator's captors have shown her pictures of Maddie's crash, so she knows Maddie is dead. During the week after the Puss Moth crash still in , Maddie uses newspaper clippings to figure out how a girl came to be piloting an airplane.
Maddie also reads a story about a gathering to support a British fascist leader named Oswald Mosley, but thinks nothing of it. She gets stuck in the crowd around Mosley in Stockport, and gets in a fight with a bunch of British Nazi wannabes who knock her down, insult her granddad's bike shop, and make some choice remarks about his Jewish customers.
A group of much nicer people helps Maddie up, and she heads out of Stockport. The narrator observes that Engel and Thibaut are both also scared of von Linden.
