House of Flowers by Charlotte Bingham
Book DescriptionIt is 1941, and England is at its lowest ebb, under-nourished, under-informed and terrified of imminent invasion. Even at Eden Park, the beautiful country estate where Poppy, Lily, Kate, Marjorie and her adopted brother Billy are working in espionage, confidence is at an all-time low, and that is before the authorities discover there is a double agent operating from its MI5 unit. Lily volunteers to be dropped into France, only to find herself linked to Poppy's husband Scott. Meanwhile, Kate's lover Eugene is in Sicily to sabotage the bombers besieging Malta while her mother is recruited to work for Jack Ward, known affectionately as 'the Colonel'. As further agents are wiped out by the informant at Eden Park, Poppy leaves to train as a pilot. But as she closes the wooden shutters at the House of Flowers, the old folly where she and Scott began their married life, she realises that they were made over a century before to keep out another invader. England survived then, and will again.

UK Kirkus Review » Imagine a fictional version of Bletchley Park. Imagine England 1941. For backroom boys and girls, fraternization is not encouraged but with Hitler due to invade any day emotions are running on overdrive. Not simply the de-coding and infiltration into Fascist circles but clandestine missions in Europe beckon. Who will go? Who might return? Kate, or mad Irishman Eugene with whom she is in love? How about Marjorie, suspicious of his blarney? Poppy, poised to marry Scott, wants only to live in the House of Flowers. Lily, with a guilt to expiate, could well be a danger. Guilt is not good news for an agent in the field. Worse still, it seems there's a serpent in the grass of Eden Park, a double agent at work. After a lifetime of writing best sellers Bingham pulls another corker out of the hat. Secrets, lies and spies, someone is certainly keeping something under theirs. (Kirkus UK)
