by Nicholas Shakespeare

448 pages
Trade Paperback
non-fiction

A transcendent work of narrative nonfiction in the vein of The Hare with Amber Eyes-at once a stunning story of detection, a loving portrait of a flawed women trying to survive in terrible times, and a spellbinding slice of history

When Nicholas Shakespeare stumbled across a trunk full of his late aunt's personal belongings, he was unaware of where this discovery would take him and what he would learn about her hidden past. The glamorous, mysterious figure he remembered from his childhood was very different from the morally ambiguous young woman who emerged from the trove of love letters, journals and photographs, surrounded by suitors and living the precarious existence of a British citizen in a country controlled by the enemy.
