Description-

  • In an enthralling new historical novel from national bestselling author Kate Quinn, two women—a female spy recruited to the real-life Alice Network in France during World War I and an unconventional American socialite searching for her cousin in 1947—are brought together in a mesmerizing story of courage and redemption.

    1947. In the chaotic aftermath of World War II, American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She's also nursing a desperate hope that her beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive. So when Charlie's parents banish her to Europe to have her "little problem" taken care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London, determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister.

    1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner burns to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. Sent into enemy-occupied France, she's trained by the mesmerizing Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of secret agents right under the enemy's nose.

    Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the truth...no matter where it leads.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Saskia Maarleveld escorts American Charlotte "Charlie" St. Clair on a transatlantic voyage in the aftermath of WWII. While in pursuit of her missing cousin, Rose, Charlie meets up with Eve Gardiner, a pistol-toting and whiskey-drinking former spy with a gift for subterfuge and languages, and Finn Kilgore, a charming Scottish mechanic and handyman. Maarleveld slips in and out of French, German, English, Scottish, and American personas as deftly as the spy operatives she portrays. Tension and passions mount as the story shifts between Eve's wartime mission in 1915 and Charlie's present-day circumstances in 1947. Maarleveld's especially discerning performance of Eve's transformation from young, eager recruit to bitter middle-aged woman is revealed in subtle stages. Listeners are treated to an empowering and bittersweet performance. J.R.T. 2018 Audies Finalist � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine

    Starred review from

    In May 1947, Charlotte "Charlie" St. Clair and her mother have crossed the Atlantic so the unwed Charlie can discreetly end her pregnancy in a Swiss clinic. A chance to search for her beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared during World War II, gives Charlie the courage to break free and head to London. Rose may have been involved in the French Resistance, and her last known connection was a woman named Eve, who carries her own war secrets. Even with the background detail given at the novel's outset, there is so much more to learn as these characters are thoughtfully developed through interior decision making and the actions they take. Allowing Charlie to describe present events, while Eve shares her experience as an English spy for the real-life Alice Network during World War I, creates a fascinating tension that intensifies as the finale approaches. VERDICT A compelling blend of historical fiction, mystery, and women's fiction, Quinn's ("Empress of Rome" series) complex story and engaging characters have something to offer just about everyone. [See "Summer Escapes," LJ 5/15/17.]--Stacey Hayman, Rocky River P.L., OH
