The Unknown Mrs Rosen?



The Unknown Mrs Rosen
 

 

“A FAMILY IS GOOD COVER
You do love them, though; the emotions, at least, are real.”

What happens to a spy when she’s ninety years old? THE UNKNOWN MRS ROSEN tells the story of a spy, but this is no ordinary spy story.

It's about a family being torn apart by caring for their mother in her final years - and the contrast between the helpless person she is becoming and the capable, courageous woman she used to be. For in the end it is not Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia which defeats Marjorie Rosen, but neglect in hospital in a quiet English seaside town.

While her middle-aged children struggle to deal with social services, Marjorie relives an unspoken life of espionage, betrayal and violence – about which they know nothing.

A brilliant, tough-minded problem solver, the young Marjorie is transferred from code-breaking, trained for combat and sent alone into wartime Germany to make contact with the wife of a senior Nazi official. There is an instant rapport between the two women.

A secret alliance between Marjorie and Erika continues throughout the Cold War. In a clandestine web of former wartime connections, Marjorie is drawn deeper into the world of secret intelligence.

War is the making of Marjorie and her generation. Great historical events provide the background to an obscure life that is, in fact, thrilling and heroic.

Marjorie must constantly guard her cover as an ordinary wife and mother, always purposely unremarkable, raising three post-War children who cause great grief to her beloved husband Harry, even, she believes, contributing to his death.

On the eve of retirement, when Erika is finally betrayed and murdered, Marjorie hunts down the traitor to a corner of rural France seething with its own legacy of dark memories and wartime secrets.
