About the Author
Ann Bridge (1889-1974), or Lady Mary Dolling (Sanders) O’Malley was born in Hertfordshire. Bridge’s novels concern her experiences of the British Foreign Office community in Peking in China, where she lived for two years with her diplomat husband. Her novels combine courtship plots with vividly-realized settings and demure social satire.
Bridge went on to write novels around a serious investigation of modern historical developments. In the 1970s Bridge began to write thrillers centered on a female amateur detective, Julia Probyn, as well writing travel books and family memoirs. Her books were praised for their faithful representation of foreign countries which was down to personal experience and thorough research.

The story features Hope Kirkland, the pampered daughter of the American ambassador, who discovers in herself a talent for intrigue, helping to smuggle gallant Poles across the frontier under the threat of the German invasion; in so doing, at no little cost to herself, she discovers unexpected strength and compassion, and we see her maturing as she really falls in love for the first time.
