From the bestselling author of The Gunner Girl - how far will two women go to survive WWII?

Having suffered a traumatic experience in the Blitz, Edie feels utterly disillusioned with life in wartime London. The chance to work with the Secret Operations Executive (SOE) helping the resistance in Paris offers a fresh start. Codenamed 'Yvette', she's parachuted into France and met by the two other members of her SOE cell. Who can she trust?

Back in London, Vera desperately needs to be made a UK citizen to erase the secrets of her past. Working at the foreign office in charge of agents presents an opportunity for blackmail. But when she loses contact with one agent in the field, codenamed Yvette, her loyalties are torn.

Praise for Clare Harvey's novels :
'Will delight all those who love a good wartime story' Dilly Court
'An irresistible tale of friendship, love and heartache during WW2 that had me enthralled' Kate Furnivall
'Heart-warming, enjoyable and full of surprises, I loved The Gunner Girl' Elizabeth Chadwick
'Clare Harvey is an exceptional new talent. The Gunner Girl offers a stunningly realistic vision of the WW2 era, through the intertwined lives and loves of three very different women. The story is brought to life by razor sharp dialogue, an eye for period details and a taut plot which never becomes sentimental' Kate Rhodes
'The sense of period, the descriptive prose and the superb writing make The English Agent a real page-turner. Clare is certainly a gifted storyteller' Ellie Dean
'A gripping story of wartime espionage with two brave heroines struggling to live and love in a world where all the odds are against them' Julie Cohen , author of Dear Thing
