Miss Carter’s War by Sheila Hancock

HancockMarguerite Carter, half French/half British was part of SOE in France during WWII. Back in Britain she is one of first women to graduate from Cambridge, and begins teaching.

We follow her through the decades as she follows this passion, making a difference to the lives of many.

There are a few romances along the way (especially Jimmy), but she’s always remembering Marcel, the man she left behind in France. Will they ever be reunited?

This is a wonderful historical novel, and includes great social commentary about twentieth century Britain, including women’s rights, political activism, AIDS epidemic, and the education system. Quite epic!
