OUR WOMAN IN MOSCOW is set in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In 1948, Iris Digby disappears from her home in London with her husband Sasha and their children. With Sasha having been an American diplomat, it is assumed they have defected to Moscow with countless American secrets. In 1952, Iris’ twin sister Ruth gets a postcard from her sister. They haven’t seen each other in years, but she can’t help but be drawn to the one person to whom she was once as close as she could be. When her sister asks for help, she is drawn into the world of counterintelligence, aided by agent Sumner Fox to try to bring her sister home.
I loved this book! It was so easy to get enmeshed in the story of these two women as we move between their alternating points of view and back and forth in time. I especially enjoyed Ruth and her sense of humor as she narrates her story! Ruth and Iris have not spoken in twelve years, well before Iris’ presumed defection. The reader is drawn in to follow along as Ruth and Iris each lay out their history, from a close friendship to a twin sister completely alienated.
I loved the way the author blended the intrigue and plut with the character development throughout the book. This is a book I would highly recommend to fans of historical fiction!
