Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Churchill, Roosevelt and isolationist USA drama."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES. Wonderful realistic fast flowing politics and romance. Vivid realistic content portrayed by top notch narrator.


    What other book might you compare Sleep in Peace Tonight to, and why?

    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.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There are so many incidents in so many places that it is difficult to choose one. I just enjoyed them all.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Somewhat sad in places: especially secret work in France and descriptions of blitz.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
