Welcome to the Faithful Readers Book Club web page.
Our February book will be The Alice Network. 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. 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 her cousin Rose who disappeared in WWII.
1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner is 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, the Alice Network, 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.
We will meet at Libby Murrell's home — 4304 Spring View Court — at 6:30 PM on Thursday, February 21st.
