'Superbly done... Another winner' Sunday Telegraph

America, 1959. With two young children she adores, loving parents back in London, and an admired husband, Charlie, working at the British embassy in Washington, the world seems an effervescent place of parties, jazz and family happiness to Mary van der Linden. But the Eisenhower years are ending, and 1960 brings the presidential battle between two ambitious senators: John Kennedy and Richard Nixon. But when Frank, an American newspaper reporter, enters their lives Mary embarks on a passionate affair, all the while knowing that in the end she must confront an impossible decision.

6 out of 10. Not as flat as the first review, not as great as the second. Had some good bits, had some not so good bits.

One of my favorite books; great character development, palpable tension, heart-wrenching resolution. The mid-century NYC setting is vividly drawn. If you like "Mad Men" you'll love this book.

Nothing to write home about. The book was all over the place and ultimately I did not find the characters believable. I kept thinking He's no Graham Greene.
