Bette (The Women of Ivy Manor #2)

Elizabeth “Bette” Leigh Black comes of age in the years before WWII. Although money is scarce in the aftermath of the Depression, her home with her mother, Chloe, and her stepfather is happy. But as the war taints their sheltered world, Bette begins to realize life is sometimes cruel, and not everyone has the happiness she does. She finishes school and briefly becomes involved in anti-Nazi espionage until she marries. Married life, however, is not the happy dream she imagined. Sent overseas, her husband, Curt, falls in love with a young Frenchwoman and leaves Bette alone and pregnant. She is forced to rely on her own strength, and her God’s, and returns to espionage. When Curt finally returns to beg for reconciliation, Bette must decide whether or not she can trust him again, and if marriage to him is truly what is right for her and her daughter.
