Publisher's Summary

Daughters of Eden focuses on the lives and fortunes of four very different young women at the outbreak of the Second World War. Marjorie, left at a boarding school by her emigrating mother; plain Poppy, pushed into marriage with a mean-spirited aristocrat; Kate, despised by her father, but determined to prove herself; and man-mad Lily, who turns out to be the bravest of them all. That all of them are chosen to work undercover for the espionage unit at Eden Park is a surprise, not least to them.

An amazing book everyone should read.

An amazing book everyone should read. You will not be able to stop listening. It takes you into the personal lives of young women during WWII and how some of them became vital to the secret agencies that helped win the war. I only wish it would have contiued into their lives after the war.

Thoroughly enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and will no doubt listen again at some point in the future. The plot is very interesting and gives some helpful insights into some historical aspects of WWII in England. The story does not move exceptionally fast, yet it draws the reader in and keeps you wanting to hear more. I wanted it to keep going after I got to the end... I thought it was well-read and would definitely recommend it.

Thrills in WWII

Review by Simon's wife : This was the first book by Charlotte Bingham I had read/listened to. It was fascinating the way the girls' lives were so very different and how the author managed to weave them together. There isn't a lot of period detail- although the action is all WWII- but what makes it interesting is the way the characters are fleshed out and you feel sympathy for them all along, even the ones who aren't particularly nice! There are twists and turns along the way that surprise you ( I won't give the game away) and I hugely enjoyed listening. The story kept me going as I did all the boring preparations in the kitchen for Christmas and I am going to look out for more by this author.
