Riveting historical fiction that brings to life early British radio, and one woman who finds her voice working with the brilliant BBC staff
London, 1926. American-raised Maisie Musgrave is thrilled to land a job as a secretary with the upstart British Broadcasting Corporation, whose use of radio-still new and electrifying-is captivating the nation. Soon Maisie is gaining confidence as she arranges broadcasts with famous writers and politicians, but she's also caught up in a growing conflict between her two bosses, John Reith, the formidable director-General of the BBC, and Hilda Matheson, director of the hugely popular Talks programming. But when Maisie unearths a shocking conspiracy, she and Hilda join forces to make their voices heard both on and off the air ... and then face the dangerous consequences of telling the truth for a living.
