I felt as if I had stepped back in time while reading this book and had a front row seat to all of the danger and tension in London during WWII. The author does a superb job of creating a main character that has a lot of pluck, is strong-willed, but yet still has that touch of innocence about her. I quickly came to adore Maggie Hope and fully enjoyed her endeavors at No. 10 Downing Street.

Recommend? Yes! The author blends fact and fiction seamlessly, so much so that you actually believe Churchill was exactly as he is portrayed in the book and that there was in deed, a real Maggie Hope. This is a great start to a series that I just know I will be anxiously awaiting each new release!!
