Review: The Invisible Woman

The Invisible Woman by Erika Robuck My rating: 5 of 5 stars Following the life of the remarkable American spy Virginia Hall, Erika Robuck's novel "The Invisible Woman" gives readers a richly researched account of the only woman to win the Distinguished Service Cross during WWII, along with the French Croix de Guerre and the British OBE (Order of the British Empire). Hall worked for the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) and the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), working to aid the French Resistance, helping downed airmen escape capture, providing cash and information to the Resistance groups like the Maquis. What makes Hall's story incredible is that she was disabled- she walked with a prosthetic leg and her limping gait put her at greater risk both because it made her more easily identifiable and her escapes harder pull off. Virginia Hall was never caught and was arguably the most successful spy working for the allies during WWII
