The new uplifting WW2 historical series from queen of saga Molly Green: available to pre-order now!

Will helping the war effort mend her heartbreak?

September 1939. London is in blackout, war has been declared, but Dulcie Treadwell can think only of American broadcaster, Glenn Reeves, who didn’t say goodbye before leaving for Berlin.

Heartbroken, Dulcie is posted to Bletchley Park, where she must concentrate instead on cracking the German Enigma codes. The hours are long and the conditions tough, with little recognition from above. Until she breaks her first code…

But when a spiteful act of jealousy leads to Dulcie’s brutal dismissal, her life is left in pieces once more. Is it too late for Dulcie to prove her innocence and keep the job she loves? And will her heart ever truly heal if she doesn’t hear from Glenn again…?

A new, inspiring wartime series set at Bletchley Park, perfect for fans of Nancy Revell and Donna Douglas.

A new WWII book taking place at Bletchley Park, the place the German codes were broken. It played such an important part in the war so it was very interesting to read more about what went on there on a daily basis.

I like Dale as a character, she was smart and young and she handled herself well. I did think the ending of the book was pretty abrupt, but it looks like there will be more books in this series.

This book was sent to me electronically for review by a Netgalley. I enjoy WWII books…this is a quick, light read about a segment that we seldom read about. The author has woven a journey for the reader…tantalizing…interesting…learning…love…family…friendship…themes running through this book…try this one…

What a great ww2 saga from a seasoned author.
Dulcie or Dale as she like to be called has one hell of a journey in this well written book. It follows her career in Bletchley Park with a few mishaps on the way and a little bit of romance thrown in.
A great curl up and read book.
Highly recommended

Dulcie lives with her mother. Her father is working away from home when he sends his wife bad news. She is distraught and clings to Dulcie as she doesn't want to be alone. But Dulcie has other ideas and as a result of winning second prize in a crossword competition she is asked by the government if she wants to do something to help win the war. Soon Dulcie finds herself in Bletchley Park de coding German messages,
Before she left to go there she met Glen, an American radio correspondent . They fall in love but all too soon he is posted to Berlin and they haven't given each other their contact addresses .

I thought this was a good read. I've read a few books set at Bletchley and enjoyed reading this one too.
I thought Dulcie managed to cope well with some of the obnoxious people who came into her life. I did find it it strange that two men fell in love with her at first sight within a few weeks of each other. My imagination only stretches so far.
I was enjoying reading this but was surprised and dismayed when it ended so suddenly. It doesn't look as if the next book in the series is a sequel to this so I'll just have to be content that everything will have turned out well in the end

What a wonderful historical fiction! Perfect to cozy up with and read with a cup of coffee or a snack. Green has a way of crafting likeable characters and creating a comfortable yet exciting atmosphere in her books. While some elements felt a little far fetched, the book as a whole was an absolute pleasure to read. Quickly becoming one of my favourite historical fiction authors, I can't wait to see what else Green writes. I know I'll be reading whatever she puts out in the future.
