'A breathtaking story' Daily Mail 'Extraordinary' The Telegraph on
the Cook sisters Desperate circumstances can cause ordinary women
to achieve extraordinary things. No one would have predicted such
glamorous and daring lives for Ida and Louise Cook two decidedly
ordinary women who lived quiet lives in the London suburbs. But
throughout the 1930s, the remarkable sisters rescued dozens of Jews
facing persecution and death. Ida's memoir of the adventures she
and Louise shared remains as fresh, vital, and entertaining as the
woman who wrote it. Even when Ida began to earn thousands as a
successful romance novelist, the sisters directed every spare
resource, as well as their considerable courage and ingenuity,
towards saving as many as they could from Hitler's death camps.
