“We’ve reached the end of the first diary and I still don’t know what makes them so important.”

“She’s been working at Bletchley a year now and her diary entries are getting very sparse. There aren’t more than one or two entries a month. I guess with the Official Secrets Act it is what is expected.”

“Let’s read on. There must be a reason those German thugs or who they represent wanted the diaries so bad.”

July 5, 1941

I had dinner with Samuel last night. It was so romantic. The one thing that is good about blackouts is candlelight dinners. I can see the strain of the war on his face. With where we work, I can understand his weariness. He smiled and held my hand during dinner. Afterwards we walked along the lake and Samuel asked me to become his wife. We’ll need to wait until the war is over but we made promises to each other.

I haven’t seen Samuel since the night he proposed. He hasn’t been at Bletchley and people stop talking when I pass them in the hall. I know something has happened but I don’t know how to find out.
