Wednesday Night Book Club- October 2019
Our discussion for October will center on Kate Quinn's The Alice Network.
From Goodreads: This historical novel will transport readers across time in a mesmerizing story of courage and redemption. In 1947, Charlie St. Clair is unmarried, pregnant, and about to be thrown out by her prim and proper family. When her parents send her to Europe to take care of her "problem," Charlie instead embarks on a mission to find her beloved cousin who disappeared in Nazi France during the war.
In 1915, Eve Gardiner longed for the chance to fight against the Germans in the war and unexpectedly gets her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. She's sent into enemy-occupied France and is trained as part of the network of secret agents under the enemy's nose. Now, thirty years later, Eve spends her days drunk and holed up in her London home. That all changes when Charlie St. Clair barges in asking questions about a woman Eve hasn't heard of in decades and launches them both on a mission to find the truth.
