Mr Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia Macneal

Mr Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia Macneal (2012)

Maggie Hope has returned to London to sell her dead aunts house, settle the estate and visit her parents graves.  Sales are slow, so she finds herself looking for employment and finds a job as a secretary at the War Office and working for Mr Churchill himself.

As well as worrying about the approaching Germans, there is terrorism within the UK to worry about as well.  Spies are everywhere!!

It is a time period that I often like to read about, but I failed to really connect to any of the characters in this novel.  I feel bad for giving it only a 2/5, as I wanted to love it more than I did.
