The Alice Network by Kate Quinn is an excellent read. There are two stories entwined: 1947 – After WWII, Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and hoping to find her cousin Rose. Charlie travels to London determined to find her. What incurs is half of the book and very exciting.
1915 – Eve Gardiner is recruited to work as a spy. She’s trained by the fabulous Lili, aka Alice, and joins a network of amazing women. The Alice Network is fierce, deep, and full of heart and soul. Right under the enemy’s nose, these women work in restaurants, etc. and discover amazing Nazi secrets. Now thirty years later, Eve is a drunk – but becomes engulfed in a search by Charlie for a lost soul named Rose. Oh, and so many other skeletons surface. The truth is difficult to face, but so necessary for many. The name Rene Bordelon will live long in your memory. He is evil incarnate!
The name Finn is fabulous – oh yeah, he’s a hero for Eve and Charlie.
The intertwined stories here are well done and so intriguing. You will keep turning pages and rooting for good over evil, life over death, and women power extraordinaire. I highly recommend The Alice Network.
