Join us to discuss Mr. Churchill’s Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal.
After German Luftwaffe bomb London Maggie Hope, trained in math and code breaking but snubbed because of her gender when she attempts to find a code breaking job, accepts a secretarial post in the prime minister’s office and soon finds herself hunkered down in the War Cabinet Rooms and taking dictation from Winston Churchill. Danger comes not only from German bombers but also from a murderer who has already claimed another secretary as a victim, and Maggie is soon using the unfettered access her position demands to try to unravel a plot to assassinate Churchill himself. Susan Elia MacNeal blends meticulous research on the era, psychological insight into Winston Churchill, and the creation of a riveting main character, Maggie Hope, into a spectacularly crafted novel.
WhoDunnits is a discussion group devoted to mysteries that follows a yearlong program of books and movies around a single topic. This year it’s historical mysteries. WhoDunnits meets the first Tuesday of each month.
