Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Frozen Lake comes an enthralling novel of love, betrayal, and idealism as three very different young women go up to Oxford in the years immediately before World War Two.
Vee - the clergyman’s daughter. Boyish, alluring, she plans to use her time at Oxford to put right everything that went wrong in her loveless childhood. Her friendship with Alfred introduces her to politics and the subversive attractions of secret societies; it will lead to her career as a secret agent, but at what cost to old loyalties and her true feelings?
Claudia, radiant, intense, aristocratic, is equally drawn to the secret society and one member in particular; his dazzling influence will see her travel to Berlin and come under the spell of fascism as war looms.
And Lally, glamorous daughter of an Irish-American senator, is sceptical of the society and the arguments from both sides.

Would you listen to Voyage of Innocence again? Why?

No - but only because I never return to books I have read before. I don't like knowing what's going to happen.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Lally because she is good, through and through: sensitive, kind, calm and non-judgmental.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

V's wedding to Giles.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

V's realisation that her mother only loved Daisy.

Hated this book and couldn't finish

I returned this book, I simply could not be drawn in to it. The narration became irritating, Vee was not a character I could bring myself to warm to or care about. Midway through the book I began to dislike her and at that point listening became arduous.
The book is set during an interesting time in our history, political upheaval and views that have now been glossed over and buried have been exposed however the storyline is weak, insipid.
This is just not my type of book however that comes down to personal choice, no I would not recommend it however if the audio clip grabs your attention do not let this review put you off.
