Books
As war rages across Europe, one young woman faces an impossible choice. Will she save her country - or the man she loves? It is the late 1930s. In London, socialite Rosamund Hanbury is determined to give up the parties and social sets of which she is a prominent member to join the war effort, along with scores of other young women. After a stint at Bletchley Park and as one of the Air Transport Auxiliary's 'Atagirls', Rosamund is recruited by the Special Operations Executive under the code name 'The Scarlet Nightingale', and eventually moved in secret to France. There she falls under the charm of Count Thierry Foustier, a gallant Frenchman with a taste for danger and women. But in the high-stakes role of secret agent Rosamund can't trust anyone, for if her true identity is revealed, she will be killed.
