Linda C (libladynylindac) | 1155 comments Charlie St. Clair is pregnant and being taken by her mother to Switzerland for an abortion in May of 1947. When the ship stops in Southampton she deserts her mother and heads to London to seek out a woman who may be her only hope in locating her cousin, Rose, who disappeared in 1944. Eve Gardiner, 54, a drunk with maimed hands, is not interested in helping until she hears there may be a connection to her supposedly deceased old nemesis Rene Bordelon. The two with Eve's driver, Finn, head to France to find the truth about both. The rest of the story alternates chapters between Eve and Charlie in 1915 and 1947. Eve was a spy in WWI, part of the Alice Network in France until its collapse. This was a great story. Both women are about the same age during the sections on their lives and each grows into her own identity. The Alice Network was real and there is an interesting afterward describing the history of the real characters. Highly recommended.
