Book Review: Dutch Girl

Loved this historical nonfiction book up to the top. The author clearly liked Audrey, and after reading this, I did too. It’s hard not to. I mean just about everyone likes the Audrey of film fame, but after I read more about her life during World War 2, I liked her more like a real…
