A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II, by Sonia Burnell

"In 1942, the Gestapo sent out an urgent transmission: "She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her."
This spy was Virginia Hall, a young American woman--rejected from the foreign service because of her gender and her prosthetic leg--who talked her way into the spy organization deemed Churchill's "ministry of ungentlemanly warfare," and, before the United States had even entered the war, became the first woman to deploy to occupied France.

Current book club guidelines/criteria : This book club is comprised of members of the American Women’s Club of Brussels and the American Club of Brussels. We look for great authors who write in English, available for purchase in shops or online, not more than 300-400 pages, and have a preference for those that have a score of at least 4/5 on Goodreads.  The books do not have to be recent, they can also be ones you loved that we might have missed.  We meet in the second week of the month, often on Wednesdays at either 1pm or 7pm, at a host’s home or a cafe/restaurant, in the greater Brussels area.
