Book Summary

Would you sell your secrets?

Catherine Carlisle is trapped in a loveless marriage and the threat of World War Two is looming. She sees no way out… that is until a trusted friend asks her to switch her husband’s papers in a desperate bid to confuse the Germans.

Soon Catherine finds herself caught up in a deadly mixture of espionage and murder. Someone is selling secrets to the other side, and the evidence seems to point right at her.

Can she clear her name before it’s too late?

Book Review by Bree Herron

Capturing this book into a review is like trying to describe the spring. It is vasts in the beauty of the writing and style. The characters, the setting, and the timeless way that the author brings it all together had me gathered in a cozy spot, reading into the wee hours. 


This was my first read from this author, but am assuring you that it won’t be the last. I was thrilled with having spent the time reading this book. I was hooked right away with this book, it was hard to put down and easy to get fully consumed by. WWII has never read as good as it did in this book, and I loved the aspect of thrill, spies, and the history that is taken together to build this story. It is with ease that I recommend reading this book, give it a day or two and enjoy the tale and adventure that it will lead you on.
