    It is the summer of 1976 in Oxfordshire, England, and someone is trying to kill Sally Gilmartin. The only person she can trust is her daughter, Ruth, a young single mother struggling with her own demons. Now Sally must tell her daughter the truth: She is actually Eva Delectorskaya, a Russian émigré recruited for the British Secret Service in 1939.

    "Interesting premise - slow for an audiobook"
    Overall

    This is an interesting character study period piece. I'm going to find it in the library and read it. I've tried listening for 4 hours now and, for me at least, the pace is way too low for an audiobook. There are complaints about the reader's accents -- she does a pretty good job with the voice demands but the story doesn't do well with episodic listening as I tend to do with audiobooks. Definitely not an audiobook to keep you awake on a long drive... but worth a read.
