For British-born Kay Eberstern, living on her husband Bror's country estate, the Nazi invasion and occupation of her adopted country is a time of terrible uncertainty and inner conflict.

Tasked with protecting an enigmatic SOE agent, a man who cannot even tell her his name, Kay learns the art of subterfuge. From this moment on, she must risk everything for the sake of this stranger - a stranger who becomes entangled in her world in ways she never expected. Caught on opposing sides of a war that has ripped apart a continent, will Kay and Bror ever find their way back to one another?I Can't Begin to Tell You is a story of bravery, broken loyalties, lies and how the power of love can bring redemption even to the darkest of places.

About the author

Elizabeth Buchan

Elizabeth Buchan lives in London with her husband and two children and worked in publishing for several years. During this time, she wrote her first books, which included a biography for children: Beatrix Potter: The Story of the Creator of Peter Rabbit (Frederick Warne). Her first novel for adults, Daughters of the Storm, was set during the French Revolution. Her second, Light of the Moon, took as its subject a female undercover agent operating in occupied France during the Second World War. Her third novel, Consider the Lily, described by the Sunday Times as 'the literary equivalent of the English country garden' and by the Independent as 'a gorgeously well-written tale: funny, sad, sophisticated', won the 1994 Romantic Novel of the Year Award. An international bestseller, there are over 320,000 copies in print in the UK. Her subsequent novel, Perfect Love, was described as 'a powerful story: wise, observant, deeply-felt, with elements that all women will recognize with a smile - or a shudder'. Against Her Nature, published in 1998, was described as 'a modern day Vanity Fair . . . brilliantly done', and Secrets of the Heart was praised by the Mail on Sunday as 'a finely written, highly intelligent romance, without any of the slushiness usually associated with the genre'. Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman has been described by The Times as 'Wise, melancholy, funny and sophisticated . . .' Her most recent novel is The Good Wife.
