Daughters of Eden by Charlotte Bingham
Book DescriptionDAUGHTERS OF EDEN focuses on the lives and fortunes of four very different young women at the outbreak of the Second World War. Marjorie, left at a boarding school by her emigrating mother; plain Poppy, pushed into marriage with a mean-spirited aristocrat; Kate, despised by her father, but determined to prove herself; and man-mad Lily, who turns out to be the bravest of them all. That all of them are chosen to work undercover for the espionage unit at a beautiful stately home is a surprise, not least to them. At Eden Park they not only meet each other, but become involved with three unusual young men - Eugene, the seemingly feckless Irishman; Robert, Kate's brother; and dashing Scott, a master of disguise, and the undisputed favourite of the unit. While there is hardly time for romance before each is sent out into the field, there is just enough for passionate new relationships to form. Only Jack Ward, the mysterious spymaster, manages to remain aloof as he guides their destinies. The fact that they will look back on this time as having made them feel more exquisitely alive than ever before is not something they will know until much later.

UK Kirkus Review » In the late 1930s women's lives were still largely dominated by men: fathers and husbands, who had very little respect for their potential. The outbreak of WW2 at the end of the decade, dreadful though it was, very often led to their escape into the armed forces, where they found acknowledgement of their ntelligence and skills. Kate Maddox, and Poppy (Lady Tetherington) who share a similar repressed past, are due to meet one another - and the motherly Marjorie and lively Kate - in the most unlikely place and circumstances .... an Espionage Unit. Each girl, unaware that she's been watched, has been chosen for her specific, if hitherto unappreciated, gifts. Their work will be of vital importance to England's survival, their lives constantly at risk. But for the first time working on equal terms with men, there are compensations! Charlotte Bingham has a vast army herself - of fans. This is one of her favourite historical periods - and she will not disappoint them. (Kirkus UK)
