My Book Pledge Featured Read: The Secret Messenger

Happy Monday Savvy Readers! I hope you’re well-rested and that you managed to stay cool this weekend! Here in Toronto, the scorching heat meant any physical activity was out of the question, making this weekend the perfect time to get a headstart on this week’s featured read, The Secret Messenger by Mandy Robotham!

I loved The German Midwife, and anything Mandy Robotham writes is a must-read for me, so I knew The Secret Messenger wouldn’t be any different. Our story begins in Venice, 1943…


The world is at war, and Stella Jilani is leading a double life. By day she works in the lion’s den as a typist for the Reich; by night, she risks her life as a messenger for the Italian resistance.


But when German commander General Breugal becomes suspicious, it seems he will stop at nothing to find the mole, and Stella knows her future could be in jeopardy…


London, 2017. Luisa Belmont finds a mysterious old typewriter in her attic. Determined to find out who it belonged to, Luisa delves into the past and uncovers a story of fierce love, unimaginable sacrifice and, ultimately, the worst kind of betrayal…

A fascinating tale of women’s bravery, The Secret Messenger weaves German-occupied 1940s Venice and modern-day London, this novel is a must-read for all fans of historical fiction!
