    1.

    2. This WWII novel is one of the best I ve read about women agents recruited by the British SOE to live amongst the local people in Occupied Europe to assist the local resistance to fight the Nazis In reality, many of these women spies were recruited from England s upper classes, and of those dropped into France, none survived A very sad truth This story is an imaginary account of one of the first women recruited The research into how the women were trained is meticulous As a backdrop, one characte [...]

    3. snazzybooks The English Agent is a well written, enjoyable novel about a subject that doesn t always get as much coverage as it should the women s effort during the war, particularly female agents that risked their lives to help the resistance against the Nazis in France.The story unfolds from two perspectives agent Edie codename Yvette who is fresh out of training on her first mission abroad, in Nazi occupied France, and Vera, who trains and looks after the agents This way you see snippets of i [...]

    4. A brilliant war time story Edie is disillusioned with wartime London and sets her sights on helping the resistance in Paris, whereas Vera wants to become a UK citizen and works in the foreign office Reading this book makes you realize how some women got really involved in the war effort, and you feel you are there with them There are some surprises along the way and I found it hard to put down Excellently written.

    5. Originally posted on albainbookland 2017 04What an interesting story The English Agent turned out to be I have read several historical fiction novels set in WW2 in the last few months so I wasn t expecting a big surprise from this one, but I soon realized that Clare Harvey had chosen a very unusual topic that people or at least me in particular don t know much about the role of women as spies during the war The story follows Eddie as she lands in Nazi occupied Paris to be the link and coder betw [...]

    6. Visit the locations in the novel The English AgentFascinating Clever to use the alternating views of two women in very different war times roles as I was in both Paris and London at the same time seeing events unfold from both sides of the fence so to speak I do think this might make things a bit tricky for reading on a kindle however as it does flit back and forth quite rapidly but as the story builds you get to really appreciate why it does this.The story was quite amazing I v read war time st [...]

    7. Second excellent read from new ish author Clare Harvey Characters you really enjoy getting to know, characters you like and want to keep as friends and others you are wary of But all are consuming and enthralling The detail of wartime Paris and London place you right there Very much looking forward to the third novel.

    8. This was completely different from what I expected, mainly, I think, because I ve read quite a few novels recently about the bravery of those involved in the SOE during WWII Here, although bravery is there, the theme is compromise The English agent is Edie, a somewhat na ve young woman, who d just come through a series of losses for which she blames herself, described in Clare Harvey s first book, The Gunner Girl She is parachuted into Occupied France where she will work as a wireless operator, [...]

    9. Told from the perspective of three people, The English Agent tells the story of how they all become involved in the WW2 occupation of France and of the work of the Special Operations Executive organisation.Edie is a young girl who was parachuted into France to be a wireless operator, Vera, her dispatcher who sees off many of the British Agents at the airfield and then there is Gerhardt a young German translator All from very different backgrounds.It was fascinating to see how their lives changed [...]

    10. I received this book to read and reviewIt is wartime in London and Edie is feeling that she is missing out on life She wants adventure and an opportunity to do her bit for the war She gets a job in S.O.E a secret Operations unit and is sent to work in Paris In a very dangerous job she takes the name Yvette as she is parachuted in.But the story doesn y just follow Edie it also leads you through the war effort with Vera who works at the foreign office But it turns out she is having a bad time she [...]

    11. An engaging story about Edie, who is escaping a personal trauma to be part of the Secret Operations Executive in Paris under the code name Yvette Her handler in London is Vera, Romanian born and desperate to gain UK citizenship The story combines fictional and real historical characters from the era and there is a real sense of peril as Edie gets caught out by her own naivety and mistakes made back in London Highly readable.A giveaway.

    12. I wasn t sure if I would like this However I was completely hooked Really enjoyed the narrative and although I did guess some of the outcomes I was pleased with the final conclusion Would try books by this author.

    13. An exciting war time story about women doing what they have to do to survive It is a story of love not a love story I enjoyed it enormously.

    14. A giveaway win the review The English Agent was a rollicking good read, the perfect example of escapism at its best Fluffy, light and full of heart, I found the overall book fun to read, a slice of historical drama with a side of adventure The overall storyline was good, albeit rather predictable Edie, the pretty English rose is sent to Paris as a secret agent as part of the war effort, WWII is always guaranteed to pull at the heartstrings , and battles it out amongst caf lattes, illegal beauty [...]

    15. I enjoyed this book, it tells the story of a female agent, dropped into occupied France in order to aid the war against the Nazis by sending messages from the French resistance back to England It is written telling the story from both sides of the channel I thought it is well written and the characters very likeable a good read I won this book in a giveaway

    16. Firstly I would like to thank Clare Harvey and for letting me read this book as part of giveaways I really enjoyed this book I thought it was going to be a romantic saga before I started reading it and so was pleasantly surprised to find it was a wartime story about a young girl who was originally in the ATS and was then recruited into the SOE It has many twists and turns and you are left wondering who is a double agent I especially liked the ending to the book, I thought it finished off well wi [...]

    17. One of the reasons I chose this book was that it had recommendations from my two favourite authors on the front cover Ellie Dean and Dilly Court l found that this story wasn t at all simular to the many stories I have enjoyed by these authors It s about Edie who is the English Agent and Vera who s in charge of the agents sent to France It s full of secrets and lies, blackmail and double agents, spies and codes At times I was confused and couldn t be sure who was on which side Not really by type [...]

    18. Thank you for sending me this book I really enjoyed this read Set during the First World War and concentrating on the important role women during the conflict It is seen through different perspectives ie Edie, who is a wireless operator in France and Vera known as Yvette , who is working in the foreign office I found both the women to be believable characters, and as the story progressed, difficult to put the book down.

    19. I found it a little slow to start if I m honest and some chapters were excessively long chapter 2 was a whopping 63 pages I wasn t overly taken with the back and forward of the characters, however I did find it a gripping read once it reached the halfway point It was refreshing to see a story that centred around strong female characters without being weakened by the end.

    20. In this world war 11 drama , Evie is smuggled into France to spy on the enemy, her life hangs in the balance A good read with believable characters.

    21. I got this book as a giveaway I really enjoyed it there were various interwoven plots which were very interesting.

    22. Interesting storyVery interesting historical read However, I did at times find the way the book was written confusing had to sometimes reread chunks, hence the lower rating.

    23. This book was not a bad read it is set during the Second World War and it is about an agent being dropped into ocuppied France The plot was a litlle bit far fetched but this did not detract from my enjoyment of the book i will than likely look out for the next book by this author as I have read her first two.
