This delightful book slowly and carefully brings one into England during the beginning of World War II with interesting characters: The world before women were accepted into the upper echelons of politics; the world of Winston Churchill's office. And suddenly, it becomes a mystery to unwind and evolves into a full-fledged spy novel with just a touch of romance. This was most enjoyable and I will make it a point to follow this series.
Can't give that away. It is, after all, a spy novel.
This was new to me.
I like this book better than most of the other books I have listened to.
It is similar to "Her Royal Spyness". It is set in a similar era, british, female heronie.
The book starts off slow, and it's a little jumpy shirting perspectives. It does address some thought provoking ideologies regarding war that I found interesting.
I do not know.
Maggie. Focused, brave, intelligent, non-selfconcious beauty.
I have not.
None really. Meeting her father is the most moving, but then not very much.
Good plot. Good listen (great reader). Not as crude or violent as other novels of the same genre.Historical references to London at the onset of the war, were interesting.
The three words I would use would be, wonderful. engaging, and thrilling.
This book is fabulous I wouldn't want to compare it to anything. I can't wait for the next book, I love the different view of history.
I loved Maggie Hope. This book made me root for her.
The story was good, but did not have me riveted. Also, I think the narrator's voice was too mature-sounding to pull off all the young female characters...which is a pet peeve of mine. I understand that the narrator in the following books is different, so we'll see how that goes.
Intrigue in the offices of Winston Churchill's office at the height of WWII.
Speeches by Winston Churchill
Reader must have an authentic American accent, especially since lead character is American. Other accents, even some of the British, seem exaggerated.
No. It took a while to get into.
Premise here seemed interesting. Ie. WWII setting, smart. Female protagonist (Wellesley, summa cum laude graduate)., who btw is also beautiful.
Intriguing, humerous, historical
The interactions with Winston Churchill, which I hope were based upon someone's actual recollection, were humanizing.
No- this was the first.
It was simply a good, interesting listen.
Great characters, vivid description of lives of Britains at beginning of WWII. Looking forward to reading rest of the series.
