I love it when historical fiction enlightens me on a place or an event I've been unaware of. I knew nothing about the women who were spies in WWI. This book follows the story of Eve Gardiner who was inducted into the Alice Network, a spy network consisting of women, during WWI. There are two stories being told within the book. One story takes place in 1915 during WWI and other is set in 1947, two years after WWII. Eve Gardiner plays a role in both stories. I was impressed how the author included real characters along with the fictional ones. The author's notes at the end identifies which people in her book were real live heroes.

I did not think the romance that blossomed during the story was necessary. There were also a few times the book could have been edited a bit tighter as it rambled in places. All in all though it was a 4 star read for me!

I love a story that combines fact and fiction and this book does it beautifully.
This is about how Eve, an English spy during WW-1 and Charlie, a precocious American girl in 1947 meet under unusual circumstances! And the odyssey begins.

Eve's story is fascinating, searching for the Nazi collaborator who ruined her, and her need to kill him. Charlie searching for her cousin who disappeared during the occupation of France.
Their stories come together in a satisfactory conclusion, a story that you will remember for a long time.

Excellent book!
