From the cover: “It was the Society wedding of 1939: Margot Moore, the beautiful American debutante, and Charles Garland, the soldier-son of a great political aristocratic family.
But the newly-wedded couple are soon parted. With Charlie away at the front and the daily threat of bombings on London, Margot continues her life of glamour and excitement. A woman whom only the peaks of emotion can sustain, she is inspired by the aura of excess and danger wrought by time of war.
Julian Grenfell’s portrait of this complex and fascinating woman of her time is skilfully woven into a vivid saga of the years that changed the world. From Britain to France to America, from the blitz to the battlefront, Margot is a triumphant marriage of artfully based fact and strong, compelling fiction.”
