"P.S. insights, interviews & more..."--Cover.
"It's 1947 and American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She's also nursing a fervent belief that her beloved French cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive somewhere. So when Charlie's family banishes her to Europe to have her "little problem" take care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister. In 1915, Eve Gardiner burns to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets her chance to serve when she's recruited to work as a spy for the English. Sent into enemy-occupied France during The Great War, she's trained by the mesmerizing Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of secret agents, right under the enemy's nose. Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in decades, and launching them both on a mission to find the truth ... no matter where it leads"-- Provided by publisher.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Decent submitted by WolfWillow27994 on August 2, 2017, 9:45am Was an interesting take on WWI historical fiction.

Fun fast read submitted by jhaberich on August 7, 2018, 4:30pm This alternates between two stories and, while I found the story of the WWI spy network flashbacks much more compelling, the post WWII story was also interesting. I enjoyed reading about WWI from the perspective of the female protagonist.

Average WWII Historical Fiction submitted by jbranski on June 14, 2019, 8:49pm This book was just alright in my opinion. The plot and most of the supporting characters are excellent, but I wish there had been more depth to the characters’ who tell the story from their POV. These two characters seemed superficial and did a disservice to a compelling storyline.
