Recruited by the US Army and Navy from small towns and elite colleges, more than 10,000 women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington and learned the meticulous work of codebreaking. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them.

I was born in 1943 and grew up never knowing about these brilliant women. Thank you Ms Mundy for telling this story of our amazing women and the obstacles they faced. They are all heroes.

Georgia Chambers has spent her life sifting through other people's pasts while trying to forget her own. But then her work as an expert on fine china - especially Limoges - requires her to return to the one place she swore she'd never revisit. It's been 13 years since Georgia left her family home on the coast of Florida, and nothing much has changed except that there are fewer oysters and more tourists.

This book had me hooked from the beginning. I loved the intricate story and all the information included to weave the stories together. It was outstanding story of relationships and feelings. Many thanks to Karen White and the 3 readers!
