Ruth, meanwhile, is struggling to make sense of her own life as a young single mother with an unfinished graduate degree and escalating dependence on alcohol. She is drawn deeper and deeper into the astonishing events of her mother’s past—the mysterious death of Eva’s beloved brother, her work in New York City manipulating the press in order to shift public sentiment toward American involvement in the war, her dangerous romantic entanglement. Now Sally wants to find the man who recruited her, and she needs Ruth’s help.
Restless is a brilliant espionage book, a good story, strong characters and full of tension and drama. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I did get slightly confused when Eva was in America though.
