This was a historical fiction novel. But the main character, Katharina, was not engaging enough to keep my interest. The premise was a little farfetched … how she managed to do her duty was a wife and mother while secretly working in the field of Intelligence without her husband figuring it out was ridiculous. It was just too difficult to take seriously so did not appeal to me as much as I had hoped.
