Mr. Churchill's Secretary

Mr. Churchill's Secretary is by Susan Elia MacNeal. The first book in the Maggie Hope Mystery series. Set in London in 1940 on the eve of the Blitz, Maggie Hope, a Brit raised by her aunt in America after the death of her parents in a car accident when she was an infant, finds herself one of the secretaries for Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Maggie is remarkably gifted in mathematics and codebreaking. When she accidentally breaks a secret German code, she finds herself involved in a web of intrigue that may cost not only her life but the lives of those she loves. A very enjoyable piece of historical fiction.

Ratings: 10th grade - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - AC (mature thematic content).
