4.0 out of 5 stars Light and entertaining, 27 Aug 2014
I'm enjoying the Ivy Lane series. I'm not overly keen on the publishing books in instalments idea, although I was intrigued to see if/how it works. So far, I would say that It seems to work fine with this story - each story ends satisfactorily and the details to remember for the next one is fairly easy to keep track of. I'm looking forward to the last two parts and not worrying that I will have forgotten any complex plot details.

My view on this book is that it would make a nice memento for anyone that's walked… Read more

The story in I Can't Begin to Tell You gives a good insight into the work of the Danish resistance during WW2.
The first setting is Denmark. British-born Kay Eberstern lives with her family on her husband, Bror's country estate. This part of the story follows Kay's involvement with the Danish resistance, turning her back on her marriage and putting them all in danger.
The other side of the story is set in England and covers the work of the morse code signal team, helping to code and decode messages to agents in the field.
I've read many war themed novels, but very few that cover the resistance work in as much detail as this. This is a good novel with lots of detail of the… Read more
