Product description

Review

One of those books so intensely alive in the past that it makes the world you actually live in feel flimsy and thin. McMahon combines a thriller writer's grip, pace and punch with the true novelist's depth and warmth of feeling (GUARDIAN)

A well-plotted, beautifully written tale which makes the point that everyone was a victim of the Great War (DAILY EXPRESS)

a fantastic read: moving, gripping,absorbing and thrillingly sexy.. a skilful, highly atmospheric drama of guilt, passion and consequences.. the kind of book you never want to end (Wendy Holden DAILY MAIL)

Compulsively readable... McMahon skilfully weaves the different strands of the complicated plot into a compelling and moving mystery story (Anna Carey THE GLOSS)

McMahon vividly recreates the stifled atmosphere of the period, sympathetically portraying the dilemmas faced by women (WATERSTONE'S QUARTERLY)

An absorbing and deftly woven tale, which impressively captures the spirit of the early 1920s... a cracking good read (PRESS ASSOCIATION)

A real treat and bound to enhance her reputation (THE MAGISTRATE)

Four stars: "Haunted by the loss of her brother in the First World War, Evelyn is shocked when someone appears with a boy, apparently a nephew" (OK!)

One of those books so intensely alive in the past that it makes the world you actually live in feel flimsy and thin. McMahon combines a thriller writer's grip, pace and punch with the true novelist's depth and warmth of feeling. (Hilary Spurling GUARDIAN) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

It is brilliant - intimidatingly good, I'd say. What [McMahon has] done is on a par with Sarah Waters - namely, writing satisfying and authentic historical fiction, but with literary excellence and sentence by sentence attention to detail. A triumph. - Kate Mosse. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
