A Corner of the Heart introduced us to docker’s daughter Susan Hooper (now Cahill) as she became involved in the London publishing world and brushed with the seedy side of the city. The Spanish Civil War loomed there. Here World War II has arrived and Susan’s sister-in-law needs her help. Gritty, involved drama with lots of passion and intrigue spice this tale of the blitz and the BBC. She’s very good.

If you like Jessica Stirling you might also like to read books by Margaret Mayhew, Mary Jane Staples and Emma Blair.

Synopsis

The Wayward Wife by Jessica Stirling

The war everyone dreaded has begun at last, but for Susan Cahill it is more an adventure than a tragedy. Helped by a white lie about her marriage to Danny, she has a new job as a producer's assistant at the BBC, and glamorous new friends, including one American war reporter who has made London his base and Susan his target. Danny is also working for the BBC, sharing a room in a freezing farmhouse in Evesham, working long hours monitoring German radio broadcasts--and worrying about Susan. Stuck in London when the blitz begins, Susan's sister-in-law, Breda Hooper, faces up to the worst with a small son at home and a husband in the fire service. Then her Italian father, hiding out from both the authorities and his former partners in crime, prepares to leave Breda a legacy as explosive as any German bomb.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
