Jennifer Ryan - The Spies of Shilling Lane

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 30, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Ryan’s debut, The Chilbury Ladies' Choir, was an engaging look at British village life during World War II. In her compelling second novel she returns to that era, following the indomitable Mrs. Braithwaite from her home village—where her husband’s divorce filing suddenly makes her a pariah—to stay with her daughter Betty in London. But Betty is missing, and with the Blitz under way, anything could have happened to her. Undaunted, Mrs. Braithwaite recruits her daughter’s landlord to help her search, and as the two unlikely detectives piece together what clues they can, an image of Betty’s life emerges that tests Mrs. Braithwaite’s ideas of class, status, and what one needs for a happy life.
