A Novel of Nancy Mitford and WWII
It is wartime London and Nancy Mitford is recovering from a devastating loss; the former Bright Young Thing is estranged from her husband, her allowance has been cut, and she’s given up her writing career. Eager for distraction and desperate for income, Nancy seizes an offer to manage the Heywood Hill bookshop while the owner is away at war. Between the shop’s brisk business and the literary salons she hosts for her eccentric friends, Nancy’s life seems on the upswing but when a mysterious French officer insists that she has a story to tell, Nancy must decide whether to resume her writing career.
Eighty years later, Heywood Hill is abuzz with the hunt for a lost wartime manuscript written by Nancy Mitford. For one woman desperately in need of a change, the search will reveal not only a new side to Nancy, but an even more surprising link between the past and present…
