Publisher's Summary

A captivating story of friendship, love and betrayal - and finding hope in the darkness of war.

London, 1939. Beautiful and ambitious Eva Harlow and her American best friend, Precious Dubose, are trying to make their way as fashion models. When Eva falls in love with Graham St. John, an aristocrat and Royal Air Force pilot, she can’t believe her luck - she’s getting everything she ever wanted. Then the Blitz devastates her world, and Eva finds herself slipping into a web of intrigue, spies and secrets. As Eva struggles to protect everything she holds dear, all it takes is one unwary moment to change their lives forever.

London, 2019. American journalist Maddie Warner travels to London to interview Precious about her life in pre-WWII London. Maddie, healing from past trauma and careful to close herself off to others, finds herself drawn to both Precious and to Colin, Precious’ enigmatic surrogate nephew. As Maddie gets closer to her, she begins to unravel Precious’ haunting past – and the secrets she swore she’d never reveal....

Critic Reviews

"With keen insight and a profoundly human cast of characters, Karen White creates a powerful story of love and redemption in Blitz-battered London and the bittersweet echoes of long-ago lives in the present day. Each piece of the puzzle lands with meticulous precision, each twist of espionage and heart-pounding betrayal propels you forward to a devastating denouement. The Last Night in London is storytelling at its finest - the kind of book you sink inside and experience, a true gift to readers." (Beatriz Williams, New York Times best-selling author of Her Last Flight)

From the devastation of World War II London to the journey of a modern-day journalist struggling to find herself, Karen White delivers a page turner with heart, grit and a perfect twist at the end." (Lisa Wingate, number one New York Times best-selling author of Before We Were Yours and The Book of Lost Friends)

Not so impressed

Story was too long and drawn out. Evas character annoying, as was the romance between Maddie and Colin...it just didn't seem a likely match. Find the Southern American drawl too grating. Doesn't make me want to listen to more from this author or the narrators. Sorry, have to be honest
