About the Book

The year is 1942. Charlie Scudder moves from the Navy to the Office of Strategic Services where Penny Conklin is then in training. They are both posted to the London Station. He soon finds himself on a night-time mission to occupied France in an unarmed Lysander SD. He will be tested by this war to the death in many ways. Through a friendship he forges with an officer in the British Special Operations Executive, Charlie is introduced to the incongruous wartime life led by many of Britain’s most privileged citizens. Long work days, even covert operations, are followed by dinners at London restaurants and, on the weekends, recuperation at a family’s splendid country home. RESCUE is a tale of war and love in the time of war. Blending fact with fiction, it tells two stories, one of ordinary people facing death and unspeakable loss rising to the occasion and the other of love found where there was once only sorrow.
