The idea for this book is great - WWII, female protagonists, several storylines that eventually come together. I really enjoyed the first half of the book, which set up the women's early lives and how they came to be involved in secret work for the British government. The second half left me a little unsatisfied. I would have liked to know so much more, but the author is trying to tell three different stories, plus small chapters about other characters. So the narrative came to be spread quite thin.
Overall, the writing and plot are very good. The reader was fantastic; she managed to have a different voice for each character (of which there were many, as I said).
