It is the first time she has fallen in love and perhaps the first time she has met a man who did not simply desire her for sex. But the First World War has broken out and despite her best efforts both her life and Vadim come under threat. There are agents and double agents operating and they will stop at nothing to protect their identities. One such man is Commandant Georges Ladoux, a member of the Central Intelligence Section of The Deuxième Bureau. Margaretha needs all her guile to follow a path to safety, but will it be enough? In Eye of the Dawn Juanita Shepherd creates an absorbing historical novel of tragedy and romance around the final years of this most enigmatic of women.

A self proclaimed hopeless romantic, Juanita has been writing ever since she can remember. Her love for writing led her to pursue a politics and journalism degree at The University of Notre Dame in Fremantle. When she's not writing, she enjoys watching old Hollywood classics, and Manchester United matches with her siblings.

  • An amazing read, would highly recommend it especially if you love history and good old fashioned romance.
    On a side note 2017 marks 100 years since Mata Hari's death which I found really fascinating.
