What you need to know before your trail

Society heiress Evelyn Brooke-Edwards is a skilled interrogator – her beauty making her a non-threat in the eyes of the prisoners.

Farm girl Betty Connors may not be able to type as she claimed, but her crack analytical skills soon find her unearthing covert connections.

German ex-pat Judith Stern never expected to find herself listening in to German POW’s whispered conversations, but the Nazis took her father from her so she will do whatever it takes to help the Allies end this war.

Billeted together in the attic of Latimer House – a place where secrets abound – Evelyn, Betty and Judith soon form a bond of friendship that carries them through the war. Because nothing is stronger than women united.

Travel Guide

The amazing true story of Latimer House

De Vere Latimer Estate  or Latimer House is a real house!  Known as one of Britain’s most secret homes, the mansion house played an important part in military intelligence during World War II.

During the Second World War, the house was the headquarters of IV Corps from August 1940. It was also one of three stately homes where captured German U-boat submarine crews and Luftwaffe pilots were initially held before being transferred to conventional prisoner of war camps.

Prime Minister Churchill ordered an unlimited budget to be spent on converting the estate for ‘secret purposes’.
