The Great War is over, and change is in the air, in this
novel that brings to life the exciting days of early British
radioâ€¦and one woman who finds her voice while working
alongside the brilliant women and men of the BBC.
London, 1926. American-raised Maisie Musgrave is thrilled to
land a job as a secretary at the upstart British
Broadcasting Corporation, whose use of radioâ€”still new,
strange, and electrifyingâ€”is captivating the nation. But the
hectic pace, smart young staff, and intimidating bosses only
add to Maisieâ€™s insecurity.
Soon, she is seduced by the workâ€”gaining confidence as she
arranges broadcasts by the most famous writers, scientists,
and politicians in Britain. She is also caught up in a
growing conflict between her two bosses, John Reith, the
formidable Director-General of the BBC, and Hilda Matheson,
the extraordinary director of the hugely popular Talks
programming, who each have very different visions of what
radio should be. Under Hildaâ€™s tutelage, Maisie discovers
her talent, passion, and ambition. But when she unearths a
shocking conspiracy, she and Hilda join forces to make their
voices heard both on and off the airâ€¦and then face the
dangerous consequences of telling the truth for a living.
