One of my favorite genres is historical fiction, and the best one I’ve read recently is In Farleigh Field, by Rhys Bowen. It has a war, murder, romance, mystery and suspense, and Nazis! The setting is Farleigh Place in Kent, England, during World War II. The main characters are Lady Pamela “Pamma” Sutton, who works for a mysterious “government department;” Jeremy Prescott, RAF flying ace; and Ben Cresswell, who also works for a “government department.” Pamma is in love with Jeremy, and both Jeremy and Ben are in love with Pamma.
A soldier with a failed parachute falls to his death in the field, and something’s not right about him. Pamma and Ben team up, along with their respective mysterious government departments, to follow the trail of spies and traitors to find out who has betrayed their country and to save England from the Nazis. I recommend this beautifully written book: I predict a movie in the future, and I’ll be waiting to see it. Now available in 6 formats on Amazon.
