Settle down with the stunning wartime story of a family trying to survive, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The New Mrs Clifton When the Nazis invade Denmark, British-born Kay Eberstern is sickened when Bror - her husband of twenty-five years - collaborates with the enemy to save his family home. Lured by British Intelligence into a covert world of resistance, her life in the hands of London's code breakers, Kay's betrayal of her husband is complete as she risks her home and children to protect an SOE agent who won't even tell her his name. As her family - especially her headstrong daughter - is drawn further into danger, Kay is faced with a wrenching moral dilemma. Who will be sacrificed next for the cause? Can she and Bror ever find their way back to one another? I Can't Begin to Tell You is a beautiful story of bravery, broken loyalties, lies and how the power of love can bring redemption even to the darkest of places. Praise for I Can't Begin to Tell You: 'Impressive . . . Buchan brings the period vividly to life' Sunday Times 'Such a good novel, full of incident and history' Daily Express 'A gripping story of courage and conscience. Highly recommended' Sunday Mirror 'Gripping, fascinating' Daily Mail
