    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

    Story
    If you could sum up Mr. Churchill's Secretary in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating historical conjecture


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mr. Churchill's Secretary?

    The first appearance of Winston Churchill


    Have you listened to any of Wanda McCaddon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never heard this narrator before.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You thought you knew history.... here is the story behind the story you know.


    Any additional comments?

    The only complaint I have is that there are too many endings to the book... either the various story lines need to be tied more closely at the end, or shorten the book. Still, a very good listen, well worth the time and credits!

    Edgar Award-winning author Sharyn McCrumb brings her storytelling talent and keen eye for satire to this hilarious spoof of the bizarre culture surrounding sci-fi/fantasy fandom. It all takes place at Rubicon, the science fiction and fantasy convention of your nightmares.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story takes you straight to the halls of scifi cons, complete with the colorful personalities and offbeat storyline you might expect. It is not deep reading, but a light, fun read, though still demonstrative of Ms McCrumb's ability to capture the reader's attention and hold it firmly.

    There could have been a bit more character development, but the plot fun more than made up for that, and the ending was well done. I am not a con goer myself, though several of my friends are, and the tales they tell make this story a believable one.... almost!
