Denmark, 1940

War has come and everyone must choose a side

For British born Kay Eberstern, living on her husband’s country estate, the Nazi occupation of her adopted country is a time of terrible uncertainty and inner conflict.

Her husband chooses to co-exist with the enemy but Kay knows she cannot do the same. Lured into the covert world of resistance, her life in the hands of the London code-breakers, Kay’s betrayal of her husband is complete as she risks her home and children to protect ‘Felix’ an SOE agent who cannot even tell her his name.



'A nerve-janglingly engrossing portrait'

‘She who dares wins in Buchan’s gripping novel of the Nazi occupation in Denmark’

Daily Mail


‘There have been many accounts of life for resistance workers in Europe during the Second World War but while many are exciting few convey the paralysing sense of extreme danger that this story does. …This is such a good novel, full of incident and history and the minutiae of life as a spy. It’s also a story of a family with conflicting loyalties torn apart by war and the unsung backroom girls and boys whose story is equally intense’
