Carrie asked:

In the first book, the Ambassador's daughter, Georg Richwalder and Krysia are very much known to each other. Krysia was a friend to Margot, Georg's first wife. Why, in this book, do Krysia and Georg recognise each other?

Ashley Cooprider I’m not sure Georg and Krysia ever met in The Ambassador’s Daughter. I just finished it. I just can’t remember what actually happened to Margot and her father.
Debbie .skylark. I read Ambassador's daughter first and loved it. But I forgot the main female character's name. Could someone clue me in. Was Krysia the Amabassador's daughter or Margot? That book ended with the lead female leaving for a year or so and it was clear she would probably return to Georg. Thank you for any help. I don't own the books so I couldn't go back and piece it together. Thanks again.
Minnesinger Which also makes me wonder: How did Krysia know what happened to Margot? From someone in the British intelligence service? It’s strange that there is absolutely no mention in this book of her work for them in WW1. She is near 70 in this book, so she is clearly no spring chicken. Maybe the author just assumes that that is self-evident? But she could still pass on important information—especially about Richwalder, who is now even more important in the Nazi hierarchy.
Katie I have the same question! The Kommandant's Girl was written before The Ambassador's Daughter. Maybe the author couldn't find a way around it since they didn't know each other in the Kommandant's Girl? I kept waiting for there to be a reveal of sorts...that Krysia and Georg knew it each other but chose to ignore it or that Krysia revealed she knew Margot by telling Anna/Emma about her death. Those connections were never drawn for me leaving me a bit disappointed.
