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.
