A Shower of Roses - Tom Milton

A Shower of Roses by Tom Milton
Won this book in a contest and just got around to readng it. Starts out where Eva and Marek are in London where he's a banker and does CIA work in Poland.
She is a USA pediatric nurse but it's going to take some time to be able to get the same job in London. She is friends with Julianna who plays the harspicord as her husband is freinds with Marek.
The girls don't hang out much. When Marek is back in town he invites other Polish males over and Eva notices they are being watched and notifies Marek...
Alternating chapters we learn of Eva and her parents life once they came to the USA. How Eva wanted to be a nurse and her schooling til the day she saw her father with a woman she wanted to hightail it away from them all...
Like how the book got it's title and what it symbolizes.  Wow didn't see that ending happening, lots of twists!
Enjoyed the travel and very descriptive roads and byways.
