About this book
An engrossing narrative with 2 strands: one contemporary, and one set in the 1930s. A group of English debutantes are in Germany to be 'finished,' and falling in love with Nazis; their involvement in the Third Reich will have far reaching consequences. A novel for anyone fascinated with this period, or with the Mitford sisters, from this high profile writer.
Munich, 1936. She doesn't know it, but eighteen-year old Daphne Linden has a seat in the front row of history. Along with her best friend, Betsy Barton-Hill, and a whole bevy of other young English upper-class girls, Daphne is in Bavaria to improve her German, to go to the Opera, to be 'finished'.
