The Alice Network

This was an amazing read – alternating between WWI and post WWII. It’s partially based on the true story of  Louise de Bettignies who managed a WWI spy network. The book is the story of Charlie (a young, pregnant American, in France – looking for her cousin in the WWII aftermath) and Eve (a former spy). It alternates between 1915 and 1947… telling Eve’s story as a young girl turned spy (working for the mesmerizing Lili/Alice; the things she did to get secrets) and Charlie’s as she hunts for their cousin.
