It is the summer of 1976 in Oxfordshire, England, and someone is trying to kill Sally Gilmartin. The only person she can trust is her daughter, Ruth, a young single mother struggling with her own demons. Now Sally must tell her daughter the truth: She is actually Eva Delectorskaya, a Russian émigré recruited for the British Secret Service in 1939. Sally Gilmartin has buried many secrets along with the name Eva Delectorskaya, including her work manipulating the press in order to shift public sentiment toward U.S. involvement in the Second World War and her dangerous love affair with another spy. Now Ruth is drawn deeper and deeper into the astonishing events of her mother's past. Restless is a tour de force from William Boyd. Full of tension and drama, and based on a remarkable chapter of Anglo-American history, this is storytelling at its finest. Download and start listening now!

    " An entertaining spy novel set in pre-WWII Britain and America with an ending in the mid-1970's. "

    " I found the life story of the main character (the mother) very interesting. It was hard to put down. Too bad the daughter was such a drippy, boring creature! But, that's how life is, sometimes. "

    " A book I would have never picked up on my own. It was so interesting and different. I love the way two stories are rolled up into one. Now, back to Before and After...I should stop getting so distracted with other books. "
