9780002256438: The Face of Eve

As World War Two breaks over Europe, Eve Anders is already a veteran from the Spanish Civil War. But now she’s called to a very different kind of action: to come home to train for the newly-formed SOE.

When Eve left her home town of Portsmouth, she’d never intended to return. Poor housing, poor wages and poor opportunities forced her to make a clean break. But the experience gained as a driver in Spain, desperately fighting for the Republic, enabled her to reinvent herself and to gain a confidence and maturity far beyond her years. She has become her own woman.

Which makes her a very attractive prospect in more than one sense to David Hatton, who is charged with selecting highly unusual, independent and intelligent candidates for the Special Operations Executive. This mysterious woman from his past is obviously suitable – as is her current lover, a captain from the Soviet Secret Service. For in the war that lies ahead, one thing is certain: brute force won’t be enough.

Review:

‘Betty Burton constructs the world from the female point of view… carefully considered, subtle, and observant’
Sunday Times

‘The dilemmas [Eve] faces… are still relevant to women today, and she emerges as a typical Betty Burton heroine – strong, independent’
Dorset Evening Echo

‘She places strong heroines in tough situations and creates gripping tales. She’s good.’ Bookseller
