It's January 1941, and the Blitz is devastating England. As America maintains its isolationist position, Churchill knows that Britain is doomed without its powerful ally.
Harry Hopkins, President Roosevelt's most trusted adviser, is sent to London as his emissary and comes face to face with the prime minister himself and an attractive and determined young female driver who may not be what she seems.

"Readers will savour this breathtaking ride...a heady, heartbreaking romance" (Pam Jenoff, author of The Kommandant's Girl)
"London of the Blitz comes vividly to life.... Compulsive reading." (Simon Mawer, author of The Girl who fell From the Sky)
YES. Wonderful realistic fast flowing politics and romance. Vivid realistic content portrayed by top notch narrator.
To me this book stands on its own without compare. It covers much varied subject matter from most elements of early 1940s life & politics. It is several books under one cover: all of them extremely enjoyable.
There are so many incidents in so many places that it is difficult to choose one. I just enjoyed them all.
Somewhat sad in places: especially secret work in France and descriptions of blitz.
This is a well rounded story about a particular few important years in Anglo American history where personal lives are well melded with the big scene. Cannot recommend author / narrator too highly.
