Reader's Circle: Agent Sonya
New York Times bestselling author Ben Macintyre introduces us to Ursula Burton, a woman who, by all accounts, lived a quiet, simple life in the rolling hills of England. Unbenknownst to her neighbors though, Ursula was a high-ranking Soviet intelligence officer. While evading every major superpower, she gathered the information that allowed the Soviets to build the nuclear bomb. Her story brings to life the epic clash of Communisim and Democracy – a battle that continues to echo in today’s headlines. This “immensely exciting, fast-moving account” (The Washington Post) was named a best book of the year by Kirkus Reviews, Foreign Affairs, and The Library Journal. It is sure to capture your attention and generate a lively conversation!
