Although predictable in portions, this is an excellent historical novel set during World War Two during the battle for Britain. Lord Westerham has five daughters. One daughter decided to stay in Paris because of her lover. One daughter works as a code detector. A family friend Ben Cresswell is working covet operations. The son of the neighboring land owner is a daredevil and was shot down over Germany and prisoner of war. One morning an evacuated child finds a body of a parachute man on the grounds of Farleigh. He is soon joined by the youngest daughter. Together they report to her Father. The authorities begin a search for why a German spy would be sent to the area. So is the Germany spy? Why Farleigh? I recommend this book.

Thanks for sharing your review.
Good review, and it sounds like a good book combining mystery with interesting characters and a lot of history.
