Fiction Fridays: The Time In Between
Abandoned and pregnant in a foreign country by her swindler lover, seamstress Sira Quiroga reinvents herself as an haute couturier in 1930s Morocco. Her clients are the wives and girlfriends of the political elite—a situation not lost on the British military secret service. Recruited by MI6, Sira undertakes the dangerous work of learning the plans of the Nazi authorities in Spain and Portugal.
Part Nancy Drew, part George Smiley, Sira intrepidly gathers intelligence through wit and charm while dodging both bullets and bad guys.
