Review
Jennifer Robson is a keen student of history and a wonderful storyteller. She weaves authentic events into her novels in a seamless, and engaging way. This book is loosely patterned after her grandmother's experiences as a war correspondent. Of course, there's a love story here, but there's plenty of social history, too, as we live through the blitz of London through the eyes of Ruby, an American magazine writer deployed to send back reflections to the states. In this day of instant news, it's oddly refreshing to reflect back on the days when news was more thoughtfully and skillfully reported to become historic record, and not shot out of the box in the race to be first. All told, a good summer read.

A man keeps breaking into the homes of rich couples. He ties them up and proceeds to beat and rape the women. He disguises himself with different costumes and makeup.

She is one of my favorite authors. Once you start the book, you don't want to put it down.
