I adore these types of historical fiction. Anna Jacobs books never disappoint. A little bit of everything, entertaining and a quick enjoyable read.

Good yarn, plenty of twists to keep you interested.

This book is set in London during World War II. It is one of the more heart wrenching stories I have read recently. Almost to the point of being over the top. I love Anna Jacobs as an author though, so I suffered through.
