experience in the League and their efforts to promote disarmament and later started the process of embargoes to force Italy to stop its war in Europe But she was a married woman so not eligible for employment into the public servant.Moorhouse is also very clever in having real people throughout the book Some people are well known, others are used to make Edith a very real person Edith s private

becomesfraught A visit home to Australia illuminates just how much of a European she has become Returning to Geneva, Edith maintains her cool throughout the dark days of World War II in a story that drips with atmosphere as she emerges into a cold new world Book 2 of the Edith Campbell Berry series, continues Edith s life at the Leauge of Nations in Geneva, the decline of her marraige to Robert and the renewal of her affair with Ambrose This book seemed to me to loose its way in the middle or maybe I just lost interest Either way I found parts of it dull Nevertheless I recommend reading the series in sequence as the series as a whole is excellent. Like his character Scraper, Moorhouse appears to be a mind reader Edith Campbell Berry is constantly thinking things that I think It s a pretty impressive feat from a male author I guess he s been paying attention That said, I couldn t really get into this book Each individual part was remarkable, but as a whole it was a bit flaccid Maybe it would help to have read the companion novel first. Obviously a darker tone than the first one, hence the title, nevertheless a rich story which engages on a number if levels I m thoroughly enjoying my accidental reading journey between the wars as the dramatic irony for the reader about WWII enhances the experience, inviting that sigh we get when we know tragedy is around the corner. I loved this like I loved the first in the series I love Edith and I m so touched by her struggle to work out a new way of being a woman in that time of enormous change.
