Accomplished storyteller Wanda McCaddon brings precisely the correct touch to MacNeal’s WWII glimpse of 10 Downing Street. Maggie Hope, British-born/American-raised, is in London to sell her grandmother’s home, but when war breaks out, Maggie decides to remain to do her bit. A secretary is murdered. Maggie, a brilliant mathematician, is hired as a typist in Churchill’s office—only men may be personal secretaries. McCaddon has fun with Churchill as the “boss from hell” and is effective when Maggie learns a piece of stunning news about her family. McCaddon’s energy and vocal range are impressive, and, as an invasion from Germany looms, there’s a Nazi/IRA connection and a mole, somewhere close, working to bring England down. McCaddon and MacNeal are a winning combination. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
