EVERYTHING IRISH

EVERYTHING IRISH

The Heat of the Day by Elizabeth Bowen

Many people have fled the city, and those who stayed behind find themselves thrown together in an odd intimacy born of crisis. Stella Rodney is one of those who chose to stay. But for her, the sense of impending catastrophe becomes acutely personal when she discovers that her lover, Robert, is suspected of selling secrets to the enemy.

"Elizabeth Bowen is an Anglo-Irish writer who was born in Dublin.  She also spent many years in England.  I chose this book as it is set in England during World War II and Bowen is considered one of the greatest novelists writing about the war.  I also had a relative who was injured in England due to WWII bombing and thought this would be a good book for background information." -- Kathy
