Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A young woman is caught up in a dangerous double life on behalf of her country during World War II in Danielle Steel’s thrilling new novel.
 
At eighteen, Alexandra Wickham is presented to King George V and Queen Mary in an exquisite white lace and satin dress her mother has ordered from Paris. With her delicate blond looks, she is a stunning beauty who seems destined for a privileged life. But fate, a world war, and her own quietly rebellious personality lead her down a different path.

By 1939, Europe is on fire and England is at war. From her home in idyllic Hampshire, Alex makes her way to London as a volunteer in the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. But she has skills that draw the attention of another branch of the service. Fluent in French and German, she would make the perfect secret agent.

Within a year, Alex is shocking her family in trousers and bright red lipstick. They must never know about the work she does—no one can know, not even the pilot she falls in love with. While her country and those dearest to her pay the terrible price of war, Alex learns the art of espionage, leading to life-and-death missions behind enemy lines and a long career as a spy in exotic places and historic times.

Spy follows Alex’s extraordinary adventures in World War II and afterward in India, Pakistan, Morocco, Hong Kong, Moscow, and Washington, D.C., when her husband, Richard, enters the foreign service and both become witnesses to a rapidly changing world from post-war to Cold War. She lives life on the edge, with a secret she must always keep hidden.

  • A fascinating story

    4
    By Kris Anderson, The Avid Reader
    Spy by Danielle Steel takes readers through the life of Alex Wickham. When England entered the war, Alex joined the First Aid Nursing Yeomancy in London where she drove lorries. Alex knew French and German fluently which is how she captured the eye of the newly organized Special Operations Executive (SOE). Alex becomes a secret agent who goes on dozens of missions to aid England during the war. When the war ends, Alex finds a new way to serve her country. We follow Alex from London to India, Moscow, Morocco, Pakistan, Hong Kong and Washington D.C. I find Spy to be a captivating story that is rich in historical detail from World War II to India gaining its independence from the United Kingdom to the cold war in Moscow. Danielle Steel did a superb job on the research for this book. The historical details enrich the Spy and really bring it to life. I felt like I was there with Alex. Alex Wickham was a developed character who was intelligent, strong and lovely. I became engrossed in Spy which moved along at a fast pace. It is a realistic and emotional story. There are life’s normal high and low’s as well as the travesties that come from war. I like Danielle Steel’s writing style which makes a story engaging and easy to read. Spy has family, friendship, love, grief, adventure and secrets. I like where the author took the story plus the charming ending. Spy is fascinating tale with secret agents, exploding bombs, undercover missions, political uprisings, and surprising secrets.
