Sometimes they d refer to us not by name but by hair color or body type Blondie Red Tits We had our secret names for them too Grabber Coffee Breath Teeth They would call us girls but we were not We came to the Agency by way of Radcliffe Vassar Smith We were the first daughters of our families to earn degrees Some of us spoke Mandarin Some could fly plans Some of us could handle a Colt 1873 better than John Wayne But all we were asked when interviewed was Can you type This begins four years after the end of World War II and among these women were leftovers from the OSS women who had been legends for their heroic and dangerous work during the war were also just women after all and were reduced to typing with the rest of the typing pool Still one or two of these women seem to work their way into proving their worth to the agency outside of typing and soon they are tested to see how well they can keep secrets and follow instructions and they end up being spies for the agency Eventually the task that is revealed involves finding and acuiring the manuscript for Boris Pasternak s Dr Zhivago in order to make copies to be distributed to Russian readers who will be attending an event on US soil and will return with these books in hand to share Since the novel was banned in Russia for its revolutionary subversive content they are hoping to sway the Russian people through the beauty and power of the compelling nature of this Nobel Prize winning literary legend And as with Dr Zhivago there is a love story or two but there is also a focus on loyalty and love love in its many forms from romantic to familial sacrifice and the cost of sacrifice over time to all involved Perhaps what stood out the most to me was the emotional toll it took for these women to live in the shadows of these men and in the shadows as spies or seditious and never to be thought worthy of voicing their opinion or objection to a course of action set by menThis is one of those rare books a historic and finely crafted page turner about the power of the written word that will leave you contemplating such topics as euality sexuality censorship the freedom of the press and how books have the power to change lives all topics that are still as relevant if not today This is certainly destined to be a best seller Many thanks for the ARC provided by my Book Angel
