Maggie Hope is a strong minded, highly intelligent, and
well-educated woman at a time when such women were
frown upon. Living in London at the start of WWII,
Maggie is hired as a secretary at 10 Downing Street assisting
Winston Churchill. Having greater abilities other than
typing and dictation, Maggie identifies threats in various
areas of the government and her adventures and friends
make this an interesting read.

I really enjoyed this book but there was just one small
historical error that threw me off when I saw it.
