About the Book
New York Times bestselling author Karen White writes a beautiful story of friendship, love, and betrayal. The Last Night in London moves between war-torn London, during the Blitz, and the present day.
London, 1939. Eva Harlow and her American best friend Precious Dubose are trying to make their way as fashion models. When Eva falls for Graham St. John, she can't believe her luck. Then, the Blitz upends her world, and Eva soon finds herself slipping into a web of secrecy, spies, and intrigue. As she struggles to protect everything that she holds dear, all it takes is one unwary moment to change their lives forever...
London, 2019. Maddie Warner, an American journalist, travels to London to interview Precious about her life in pre-WWII London. She finds herself drawn to both Precious and to Colin, her enigmatic surrogate nephew. As Maddie gets closer to them both, she begins to unravel Precious's haunting past--a story of friendship, betrayal, and the unremembered acts of kindness and love.
Karen White is the New York Times bestselling author of 28 books, including the Tradd Street series, Dreams of Falling, The Night the Lights Went Out, Flight Patterns, The Sound of Glass, A Long Time Gone, and The Time Between. She grew up in London but now lives with her husband near Atlanta, Georgia.
