Another war novel, this written by Kate Quinn and spanning thirty years and two world wars, The Alice Network follows two women who find themselves somehow connected.
Charlie St. Clair is American socialite on the verge of being kicked out of her family for getting pregnant out of wedlock. When her mother takes her to Europe to take care of her "little problem," she escapes and begins a hunt for a cousin she lost during World War II in the hopes that she will find her alive.
Evelyn Gardiner was a young woman recruited to become a spy during the First World War. She is sent to German-occupied France and becomes part of a vast network of female spies known as the Alice Network.
Thirty years after Evelyn's mission is complete, she spends her days drunk and alone in a house in London. When Charlie shows up at Eve's door, she brings up a name that has haunted Eve for years. This launches them both on a mission to find the truth.
This was a great read, and once I got to the second half, I really couldn't put it down. If you enjoy war novels, I think this is a great one. It's got love, war, and espionage. What could go wrong?
