Review

Powerful, harrowing and ultimately uplifting. Elisabeth Gifford has achieved an extraordinary blend of fact and fiction. * Andrew Taylor * With powerful themes of loss, hope and what it means to be human, The Good Doctor of Warsaw is a brave, moving and important book with a message we need now as much as ever. * Katherine Clements * A story that should be told and retold, and Gifford's version is readable and extremely powerful. * Antonia Senior, The Times * Enjoyment is something of a nebulous term applied to a book of this nature but for want of a better word I did enjoy this book and I'm humbled to be educated about Dr. Korczak from a book written in such an easy, accessible style. * Nudge.com * Beautifully written, brilliantly observed... a wonderful and intriguing book. -- Barbara Erskine on RETURN TO FOURWINDS Secrets of the Sea House is an arresting tale of the things that haunt us. But the real pleasure in this debut novel is Elisabeth Gifford's finely wrought prose; at turns acute, delicate and fierce. -- Liza Klaussmann on SECRETS OF THE SEA HOUSE Written with quiet, almost heroic, determination, Elisabeth Gifford's novel fictionalises these events... The end is inevitable. It is painful to read about such wickedness and suffering. * Daily Mail *
