Absolutely one of Charlotte Bingham's best! Four women's stories are cleverly and excitingly inter-twined as all of them are chosen to work undercover for the espionage unit in England at the outbreak of WWII.
Focuses on the lives and fortunes of fous 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 detemined to prove herself; and man-mad Lily, who turns out to be the bravest of them all.
