About this title

Synopsis:

Jeane Slone writes her third historical fiction once again about the amazing women of the forties. In this novel, meet Kathleen Dwyer, who on a whim answers a classified ad for a secretarial position. Little did she know that she would be entering the world of wartime espionage and spy training. The story is about how young women were recruited to become spies, what basic training and finishing school was like and real missions they were sent on. There were very few American women spies during WW II. This historical fiction reminds us that it was women who were the hidden backbone to make the Allies successful and who were World War II’s real unrecognized, unsung heroes. Included are the role of the glider pilot’s during the war and spy camp on Santa Catalina Island, CA. The women took extraordinary steps to serve their country during the war as spies being sent into German occupied Europe.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
