Summary: You do your best to be ordinary, but Millie was right; it's not in you.



Ration books and knitting patterns, marriage and motherhood: the occupations of peace. Disappointment feels disloyal, but it's not like Bletchley, where your work could change the course of history. You don't forget that night in the tin hut, Millie in the next bed, Lucy across the room, too excited to sleep, imagining all those troops on the move because you'd broken the code.

You do your best to be ordinary, but Millie was right; it's not in you. On the back of your looking-glass, you trace another pattern, one the police can't see, that will lead you to a killer.
