It has been awhile since I have enjoyed a book as much as I did The Alice Network. Set in 1947, It is the story of Charlie, a pregnant American teenager looking for her cousin who went missing in World War 2 in France. One of the few clues she has leads her to a cantankerous Englishwoman, Eve, who is drawn in by the name of the person her cousin worked for, and they travel to France seeking answers to the mysteries that haunt them. For much of the book, this storyline alternates with the 1916 background story of Eve who was part of a network of female spies during World War 1 – The Alice Network. I didn’t mind jumping back and forth because the stories are linked, and there are parallels between the women who find their strength in vastly different circumstances.
