My Story: Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan is the thrilling story of British-Indian World War Two heroine, Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan.
It's 1940 and hundreds of families are being forced to flee Nazi-occupied France. Noor refuses to stand by while Nazi forces invade her home and terrorise her people, so she travels to England and signs up to join the war efforts despite her mother's wishes.
It isn't long before her talents are noticed and she is chosen by Winston Churchill to sneak back into France as an undercover agent. Noor returns home but this time, as a secret agent
Can Noor keep her true identity a secret, report her findings back to London and help the Allies win the war?
I am going to hold my hands up and say that I have never heard of Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan before I saw this book. Instantly I knew that I wanted to know more and learn about a gap I have in my history knowledge.
This is based on a true story. And tells the tale of Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan in a simple and clear fashion. This book shines the light on a true hero of World War II. And brings to life a story that many people will not have known before. Whether you are a child or an adult this is a little bit of history that you need to discover and read about.
While my review is super short because I don’t want to spoil anything about this book, please be advised that this is a beautiful and exciting read. That show not only Noor-un-Nissa’s triumphs but also her doubts and the times when she makes errors. This is a story that needs to be shared with everyone.
