Daughters of Eden PDF ↠ Daughters of ePUB ↠


Daughters of Eden DAUGHTERS OF EDEN focuses on the lives and fortunes of four very different young women at the outbreak of the Second World War Marjorie left at a boarding school by her emigrating mother; plain Poppy pushed into marriage with a mean spirited aristocrat; Kate despised by her father but determined to prove herself; and man mad Lily who turns out to be the bravest of them allThat all of them are chosen to work undercover for the espionage unit at a beautiful stately home is a surprise not least to them At Eden Park they not only meet each other but become involved with three unusual young men Eugene the seemingly feckless Irishman; Robert Kate's brother; and dashing Scott a master of disguise and the undisputed favourite of the unit While there is hardly time for romance before each is sent out into the field there is just enough for passionate new relationships to form Only Jack Ward the mysterious spymaster manages to remain aloof as he guides their destinies The fact that they will look back on this time as having made them feel exuisitely alive than ever before is not something they will know until much later One of those event filled but vaguely soothing British books about plucky young women during World War II This is not exactly high on plausibility but everyone seems vaguely nice except of course for the fascists There is a seuel apparently but everyone is faintly dull and I don't feel the need to seek it out This book started out promising I found Poppy's story very intriguing However I found the subseuent characters were less interesting As the story progressed I became detached and found myself losing interest and not following the story I finished the book but didn't get much out of it This was a really good romp through four girls lives in pre war Britain like a Rosamunde Pilcher or a good early Maeve Binchyuick read nicely done Spies Tennis and war oh my Nicely woven plots and vibrant characters too
