The Amber Shadows by Lucy Ribchester – Published by Simon & Schuster in 2016
It’s 1942 and Honey Deschamps is a so-called typist in Hut 6 at Bletchley Park. One night she bumps into a man who hands her a package sent from Russia. It contains a piece of amber. Soon afterwards she receives more packages.
What is their secret? Who is sending them and why?
An intriguing story looking backwards to the circumstances of Honey’s birth and why her mother never speaks of it. Why does her brother know more about their real father than Honey does?
As she pieces together the real reason for the amber, she finally learns the truth – trust no-one, everything is a lie.
Well researched and written and thoroughly absorbing.
