Ike and Kay is a historical fiction novel based on the time that they spent together in Europe during WWII The author did a tremendous amount of research to write this book and it s apparent despite the fact that there are some historical inaccuracies I read an arc so am assuming that these will be cleaned up before the publish date There is still no definitive answer on whether Ike and Kay had a sexual relationship but MacManus writes the book as if they had which seems to be the prevailing belief of the historians In 1942 Eisenhower lands in London to decide how to best end the Nazi hold on Europe All visiting generals needed a driver because all of the street signs had been taken down in London Kay Summersby a member of the Motor Transport Corp becomes General Eisenhower s driver and eventually ends up becoming his chief aide in charge of his calendar and taking notes at meetings The gossip begins in the US and Europe over what kind of relationship they really had even as they continue to spend time together The press begins to refer to Kay as Ike s shadow She sees a future for them when its time for him to return to the US after the Allied victory but he has to make big decisions about his future on whether she will be part of itOverall I enjoyed this novel I had read articles about Ike and Kay in the past this book really humanizes them and you can understand why some of the decisions that were made happen high praise to the author for his extensive research on this subject If you enjoy WWII historical fiction this is a book that you don t want to missThanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review All opinions are my own

This is a well written and enjoyable novel though not as engaging as his previous novel Sleep in Peace Tonight which is also set during WWII and has a similar set up a young women s relationship with a leading WWII figureThis novel is the fictionalised account of the actual relationship between Kay Summersby and Dwight Eisenhower head of the Allied forces in Europe An enormous amount of research has obviously been done as all the historic facts ring true however I was never really engaged with Kay and in particular the inner monologues that she had on occasions An enjoyable book but a bit of a missed opportunity

read Ike and Kay free download Í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ä James MacManus James MacManus ä 6 summary In his latest historical novel Ike and Kay acclaimed author James MacManus brings to life an unbelievably true and controversial romance and the poignant characters and personalities that shaped the course of world historyIn 1942 Kay Summersby’s life is changed forever when she is conscripted to drive General Eisenhower on his fact finding visit to wartime London Despite Eisenhower’s marriage to Mamie the pair takes an immediate liking to each other and he buys Kay a rare wart. In his work of historical fiction MacManus explores the relationship between General Dwight D Eisenhower and his assigned driver during WWII Kay Sommersby Rumor innuendo and gossip have surrounded their affair for decades Only after both Dwight and his wife Mamie died did much of the truth come outI have to say that Ike came off like a real jerk in this book Kay of course was hardly blameless She knew he was a married man and a powerful one as well If she thought she could win this man she was deluding only herself Nevertheless it was interesting to see how the relationship unfolded and to get a glimpse of what they may have meant to one another especially during the stress of wartime I also appreciated the details of other wartime relationships between generals and heads of state President Franklin D Roosevelt Prime Minister Winston Churchhill and many others make appearances in this novel One glaring error very nearly spoiled it for me and totally turned my husband off MacManus goes on about Patton serving in the Pacific and how he abandoned the Philippines for the relative safety of Australia The general who did that was MacArthur not Patton Wonder what else he got wrongOh well it s historical FICTION and it certainly held my attention
