Winter Games is a novel with echoes of the Mitfords, with a dark secret at its heart. Set in pre-crash London, 2006, and Munich, 1936, it follows Francie Fitzsimon, 18, as she tries to find out what happened when her English grandmother went off to Bavaria to “be finished” and found herself with a front row seat in history.  

Rachel Johnson, journalist and Editor-in-Chief of The Lady magazine, came to Jewish Book Week to talk about the inspiration and research behind her first historical novel and the appeal of Nazism to a generation of English debutantes.
