In an enthralling new historical novel from national
bestselling author Kate Quinn, two womenâ€”a female spy
recruited to the real-life Alice Network in France during
World War I and an unconventional American socialite
searching for her cousin in 1947â€”are brought together in a
mesmerizing story of courage and redemption.
1947. In the chaotic aftermath of World War II,
American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant,
unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very
proper family. She's also nursing a desperate hope that her
beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France
during the war, might still be alive. So when Charlie's
parents banish her to Europe to have her "little problem"
taken care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London,
determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves
like a sister.
1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner burns
to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets
her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. Sent into
enemy-occupied France, she's trained by the mesmerizing
Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of
secret agents right under the enemy's nose.
Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately
tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and
secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young
American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in
decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the
truth...no matter where it leads.
