The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax

Author : Dorothy Gilman

Genre : Fiction

This was a fun read! A widow in her 60s, Emily Pollifax, finds herself in perfect health and yet dissatisfied with her volunteer work wheeling the bookcart and working the gift shop at the hospital, rolling bandages, attending the garden club and art association meetings, and joining friends for afternoon teas. When the doctor suggests she look for more congenial outlets, she remembers when she was growing up, she wanted to become a spy. On the following morning, she leaves by train for Washington, D.C., visits her congressman, and two days later goes to the Central Intelligence Agency to offer her services, and asks to see Mr. Jasper Mason. Her adventure begins when she is mistaken for another agent and sent on assignment to Mexico.
