Product description

Review

"'The story grips, shocks and saddens; but most importantly refuses to be forgotten.' The Times 'A stunning achievement... Barry has written one of the most moving fictional accounts of war that surely must rank alongside those real-life testimonies of Owen and Sasson.' Sunday Tribune 'A deeply moving story of courage and fidelity.' J. M. Coetzee" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
