How have I been lucky enough to come here, to be alive, when so many others are not? I should have died…. But I am here.

1945. Surviving the brutality of a Nazi prison camp, Marta Nederman is lucky to have escaped with her life. Recovering from the horror, she meets Paul, an American soldier who gives her hope of a happier future. But their plans to meet in London are dashed when Paul's plane crashes.

Devastated and pregnant, Marta marries Simon, a caring British diplomat, and glimpses the joy that home and family can bring. But her happiness is threatened when she learns of a Communist spy in British intelligence, and that the one person who can expose the traitor is connected to her past.

Good pl0t. Too many Americanisms..i.e "fix you a plate" or a "wood" door, as opp0sed to a wooden door. British people answered the phone up until the 70's by quoting their number. Rarely "hello". If you had an extension it would "ping" when the other phone was put down. Found the whole thing historically annoying.

The Diplomats Wife
June 17th, 2015
I have now read two of this woman's books. I should have learned after the first one that the 2nd would be no better. These books are badly written, the characters poorly developed and the plots so implausible as to be laughable. I would put this book on a par with the trash that Danielle Steele writes. So if you like that type of mindless drivel Janoff will be right up your alley.

Was exciting, but sometimes unrealistic. Meeting in a huge city with government agents seems unreal.
