In an enthralling new historical novel from national bestselling author Kate Quinn, two women—a female spy recruited to the real-life Alice Network in France during World War I and an unconventional American socialite searching for her cousin in 1947—are brought together in a mesmerizing story of courage and redemption.

1947. In the chaotic aftermath of World War II, American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She's also nursing a desperate hope that her beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive. So when Charlie's parents banish her to Europe to have her "little problem" taken care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London, determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister.

1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner burns to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. Sent into enemy-occupied France, she's trained by the mesmerizing Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of secret agents right under the enemy's nose.

Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the truth...no matter where it leads.

“Both funny and heartbreaking, this epic journey of two courageous women is an unforgettable tale of little-known wartime glory and sacrifice. Quinn knocks it out of the park with this spectacular book!”—Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author of America's First Daughter

Amazing!. A book you’ll never forget!

Loved it. Long, tedious at points, but a very enthralling story.

But it NOW!. Such a good book. Suspense, romance, & intriguing!! I don’t generally read historical fiction but this has been an eye opener! A MUST READ!!!

TUNNEL-RAT 79. GUESSS what I will have to add 🇵🇭✝️🇺🇸=🇵🇷

Could have been written better. The basic story of this book is interesting. But I found that all of the cliche’s in the book were annoying. And if she mentioned the Luger or Lagonda one more time.......Where was the editor? I read a lot of books and maybe that is why I thought that it was not that great. It has lots of potential to be better if it could be written differently. I finished it ONLY because my book club is reading it.

Extraordinary. This book is definitely a must read!!!

Love It!. aaaahhh I love this book so much i’ve read it way too many times honestly. The two stories that play simultaneously on each other really makes this book sparkle. The historical nature mixed with romance and mystery really does it for me.

Who’s revenge. Riveting. Slow to start but then couldn’t put it down. Eve suffered so much .... a plight she shouldn’t have ... Good read

Excellent. Loved this book! Definitely want to learn more about these brave women. Highly recommend.

The Alice Network. Wonderful story the ending is so touching and unexpected.

Page 48. It’s been about two weeks since I started this book. I’m on,y on page 48. It is so incredibly boring. I wish we could request refunds.

Buy it. Fantastic.

The best book I have read in a long time!. Wow! From the very beginning, this book is a page turner! I loved the parallel story lines and I truly cared what happened to Charlie and Eve. I highly recommend this book! I rarely give five star ratings but this book deserved it!

Excellent book!. I loved this book!! It was such an amazing story. The author was very detailed as well. Amazing and heartfelt story. I couldn’t put it down!

Very engaging. Story is well told. Reader is engaged in the lives of these two women. Powerful story of espionage, struggle, and relationships. A great read!

The Alice Network. Between the tough language, gratuitous violence and sexuality, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. Definitely dark and not much redemption even until the end. I love this genre and time period but just could have done without so much of it. Too much soul-selling.

Never wanted it to end. I will always remember this book.

The Alice Network. Great story. Compelling read. Characters are developed beautifully. The juxtaposition between the two female characters was fascinating showing how far woman’s options have come. The material provided at the end of the book adds to the story by sorting out fictional from factual people in the book. Learned a lot about history while reading a novel.

I want to read it OVER sand OVER again!. I could have never imagined how good this book was going to be. I honestly picked it not knowing what it was truly about but I saw it was a book club pick so I tried it. And I’m glad I did! I love this time era and I also love reading about the holocaust and the nazis and ww1. It was a thrilling storyline, one I could relate to in ways, it was heartbreaking and hilarious (I found myself laughing out loud) and surprising all in one. I would recommend it to certain people and not others due to the vulgar language and the very detailed sexual encounters. That would have been my only complaint because this is a book EVERYONE should be able to read.

The Alice Network. It’s a real page turner!

I would give this book 10 stars if I could amazing read. This book was phenomenal! Would highly recommend!

Amazing. What a great story of historical fiction. I really enjoyed this from start to finish

Excellent read. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, and was nearly impossible to put down.

..and I’m not a big fan of modern fiction!. I stick with mostly the classics….Brontë sisters, Austen, Lousia May Alcott, you get it. I truly did NOT want this book to end. The author spins a captivating tale right from the beginning, and melds the two timelines together seamlessly. I’m about to start another book by this same author!

Excellent historical novel. Gripping and engaging from first page to last.

Terrific story!. Fascinating tale. I gave it four stars only because the writing wasn’t as good as the story. That said, I enjoyed it very much.

Fantastic historical fiction. This is a quick, easy read. Full of historical data and mixed with fiction to combine two stories. Extremely riveting, entertaining, and hard to put down. The author does these women (both real and fictional) credit with this story. Highly recommended if you have any love for patriotism for our shared battles in both WW1 and WW2.

Excellent historical fiction. This really had it all! So good, I was sad when it ended

Must read!. Marvelous! Beautiful story.

Blew my mind!. Really well written account of early spy networks in France during WW1, and then related to similar WW2 activities. Great character depth, enjoyable read, couldn’t put it down.

Great book!. It started out a little on the slow side but soon became a page turner. Definitely worth the read.

What a story!. Loved every minute of this book! Great historical fiction read with captivating characters!

Eve and Charlie. Great WW2 story of strong women who cut to the chase.

Very fun read. I really enjoyed the book, caracteres and the story

Heart Breaking and Heartwarming. Just like a book should be.

Couldn’t put down. I loved every minute of reading this book. From the historical aspect to the strong female leads to the adventure. Everything I love in a book!

Enthralling and Thoughtful Storytelling. Quinn does well introducing and developing key characters. The further I read, the more involved I felt in both the individual and collective journey. I truly enjoyed how Quinn interwove history in this wartime spy novel.

The Alice Network is fabulous!. I loved this book! I have told so many about it. The Alice Network may be one of those rare books that I do read again.

Great read!. Loved this book! It was fast paced and I didn’t want to put it down.

Great read. Enjoyed the mixture of facts and fiction. Well written!

Great read!. Amazing read! Truly kept me enthralled and extra credit that it’s based on historical persons.

Engrossing. The characters all came to life and made this a thoughtful and engaging book.

Outstanding. Captivating, informative and excellent perspective!

The Alice Network. From beginning to end…Fabulous!!!!

A Fabulous Tale. This is a layered suspenseful work of historical fiction that is impossible to put down. Somehow, the moving love story entertwined adds and not detracts. And throughout all the love of France is evident.

COMPELLING READ! By Cincy Kid 68!. Haven’t read a book so intense and heart-wrenching yet also so heartwarming- as what Ms. Quinn has very eloquently written. This is beyond (5) STARS- I will definitely be reading more of her work. These (3) women show why the female gender is the stronger- us men are “wimps ” in comparison! JB

Excellent read!. Loved every detail about this book. Highly recommend!

The Alice Network. Very well written and kept my attention throughout. I also appreciated the Author’s Notes at the end. Happy Reading!

Fantastic. Good luck putting this one down! It’s got a bit of everything you want in a novel on top of a very unique compelling story

Interesting but with a lackluster ending. Loved the historical details and setting and the way the author weaved three different stories and time periods into the novel. Didn’t care too much for the epilogue; should’ve ending with the christening ceremony instead of so many years later.

Great Read. Quick pace and excellent plot. I couldn’t put it down

Perfect historical. Wonderful story; I couldn’t put it down.

The Alice Network. Completely captivated by this book. Couldn’t put it down. Months later I still find myself thinking of it. Fantastic!

The Alice Network. Excellent read. Had a hard time putting down.

Awesomel. A+++++

review. Truly spectacular, one of the best books I have read. I had to re-read it again because I adore Quinn’s use of a heroine as a strong, independent female and can be seen as a inspiration to all

Captivating. Excellent read. I was looking for a follow up book to these two great books: The Nightingale and The Light we cannot See. This was it.

Incredible. Read this book in a day, I just couldn’t put it down. Loved the plot and the writing style.

One of the most beautiful books I have ever read!. I was sucked in within the first few pages. This book made me laugh and cry...I couldn’t put it down. A must read!!!

The Alice Network. Loved this book....a mix of fiction and glimpses of non-fiction to tell a story of real wars and real spy networks. The focus on the female role in this little known (or appreciated) time in history is refreshing and emphasizes the importance and power of the female spy network....highly recommended
