The Alice Network - Book Review

The Alice Network
by Kate Quinn

Kate Quinn is the author of historical fiction the majority of her work set in Roman times. The Alice Network, however, moves effortlessly between 1915 and 1947.

The main characters, Eve Gardiner, Charlotte (Charlie) St Clair and Finn Kilgore are unlikely travelling companions, each dealing with their own torments. The reader joins them on their journey and experiences into a gripping read.

A work of fiction based on real people and events it focuses on the interaction of the main characters who are thrown together in two aspects. Their search for a woman and a child, missing since 1944, and the network of women in intelligence work during WWI and WWII. These events are skilfulling woven together and come to a dramatic conclusion the result of which is a compelling story.

If you’re looking for a book you can’t put down ”The Alice Network” will not disappoint.
Hats off to Kate Quinn. Highly recommended!
