Daughters of Eden | [Charlotte Bingham]

Daughters of Eden

Daughters of Eden focuses on the lives and fortunes of four very different young women at the outbreak of the Second World War. Marjorie, left at a boarding school by her emigrating mother; plain Poppy, pushed into marriage with a mean-spirited aristocrat; Kate, despised by her father, but determined to prove herself; and man-mad Lily, who turns out to be the bravest of them all. That all of them are chosen to work undercover for the espionage unit at Eden Park is a surprise, not least to them.

    "lovely"

    I really enjoyed this story of 3 strong women from totally different backgrounds coming together to help win the war. Well written and seemed to be 3 stories in one. Thoroughly recommend.

    "Excellent Read"

    I must say I loved both this book and "the house of flowers" by Charlotte Bingham. They were books I did not want to finish reading. Kim Hicks narratation also is wonderful. A thoroughly enjoyable read and I learnt a few facts about life pre world war 2.

    "Much Enjoyed!"

    I thought this audio book was very enjoyable. The characters were very well fleshed out. I felt I really knew who they were before the "event" of the story took place. A great way to spend a couple of rainy afternoons!

    "Engaging Characters, Fascinating Plot"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not only was the length perfect for my road trip, but the plot was very interesting and I immediately identified with the female characters in the book. I thought the reader was an amazing orator with an impressive variety of dialects and a versatile voice. The plot kind of starts off slow, but I would encourage the reader to keep with it. Things seemed to get interesting about an hour into the book. The book itself does have a fairly fragmented ending, but I felt satisfied with where the characters had gone from the beginning to the end, despite this small shortcoming. If you enjoy history, and wish for the less often accounted female point of view, this book is for you.
