About this book
The paperback edition of the latest novel from Mawer, whose book "The Glass Room" was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Set during WWII, it follows Marian Sutro, the half French, half British daughter of a diplomat, who's recruited from her desk job by SOE to go undercover in France. A gripping adventure story and a moving meditation on patriotism, betrayal and the limits of love. 'If you only read one book this year, read this one' Allan Massie, "Scotsman"
