Anita, I checked on the DVD Wish Me Luck and found that there are three series, each with 2 discs. I guess I should start with the first series!

My local Library here is doing an Inter Library Loan search for me, and I will hopefully have the book soon. Let's see what happens. Maybe the title is a bit screwed up but we will find out.
Also, I have watched a British movie entitled "Wish Me Luck" and I have found it to be the best movie done re: WW II, and Intelligence Agents(Brits) dropped behind the lines in France. This is certainly MORE realistic than any I have seen and I have seen a lot of them. It is a Series, and comes in 2 Discs from Netflix. You all need to see this one. I think this is so "Aline" and reminds me of her books to a great degree especially the training they receive before becoming agents.

Unless there has been a change you cannot copyright a title.

The book sounds great, but I wonder how was the author able to use the same name as the 1954 movie, which starred Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson.

Well Angela, I thank you as it has been a long while since I have found a book such as you mentioned here. Therefore, I will run down to the Library and request it. "The Last Time I Saw Paris, sounds absolutely wonderful. If she sounds like The Countess then she is one "resilient & determined cookie" as a character. I look forward to reading this novel.

I am half way through a book entitled The Last Time I Saw Paris, by a fabulous new author, Lynn Sheene. It is fiction, set in German occupied France where the lead character is a socialite from Manhatten that becomes a spy for the resistance in France. For all of you who are starved for something with the Countesses' flavor, you will love this book. The character Claire reminds me a lot of Aline, with her feisty, fly by the seat of your pants demeanor and built in elegance.

no problem Sarah, as I figured it out, and its only a mistake.
When you think you figure it out let me know. I will keep looking for those notes I recorded a long time ago.

Sorry, her name is actually Aisha (sometimes with at 'y') Benhima -- Ahmed was her husband.

No worries!! It was really curiosity more than anything. I did try googling but didn't have any luck. I found one woman who I *thought* it might be -
Ahmed Benhima, wife of the former Moroccan ambassador to the U.N
but something contradicted it (can't remember what) but that was all that I could find.
I will keep y'all posted if I decide to take a trip!

Sarah, my apology...I tore my office apart looking for that info I saved, and still could not find it. I am still looking & when and if I do I will post it.If I could"just remember the name as I tried hard at the time to memorize it.
I hope you do go to Extremadura, to Trujillo, and maybe Pascualete. What a wonderful trip it would be for you!
