Sarah- Jane Stratford
I received an early copy of this book from First To Read in exchange for an honest review.
The Great War has ended and Briton is celebrating the birth of the radio. Maisie Musgrave gets in on the ground floor. Secretary to Mr. Reich and Miss Shields as well as Miss Masterson in Talks. As time goes on Maisie proves herself again and again, eventually becoming secretary to Talks alone. She loves what she does, and her supervisor Hilda. The two get along well and she feels a connection to Hilda and her work. When Maisie starts uncovering conspiracies it is only natural that she go to her supervisor and confidant for help.
In a time torn between old ways and new, many are uncomfortable with the amount of power women are getting. The right to vote! Working! And yet, there are some like Hilda and Maisie that would do more.
This novel is fast paced and exciting. Maisie has a naiveté that is endearing in the beginning, and grows into quite the “modern woman”. I loved watching the progression. With intelligence, wit, and a well paced writing style I can imagine this one being a favorite.
This book comes out June 14th, 2016. Be ready!
On the adult content scale I give it a three. Fairly mild, some sexual content.
