Review

Written with a delicate intelligence . Sidney Chambers is as convincing as any flesh-and-blood creature, not just an idea of a parson. This is because Runcie has thoroughly imagined him and in this coming-of-age novel he shows us how and why he became what he is -- Allan Massie ― Scotsman

Charming, clever and warm: perfect comfort food for the soul -- Joanne Harris ― Daily Telegraph

Hugely enjoyable . Some of the finest writing I have ever read about the sorrow and the pity of war ― Herald

A tremendous novel - shrewd, compelling and full of insight - James Runcie elevates the genre to impressive new heights -- William Boyd

Written with such tenderness, and very moving - I loved it ― Elizabeth Buchan

Runcie excels at evoking the look and feel of warfare . Casts the show's first three series in a disturbing but satisfying new light. One can hardly ask for more ― independent.co.uk

If you love the TV series Grantchester, don't miss this captivating prequel. It reveals the backstory of how a young Sidney Chambers, carefree in London just before the Second World War, came to be the charming crime-fighting clergyman we know today ― Yours

The brand new prequel to Runcie's much-loved series takes Archdeacon Chambers right back to his time as a demobbed young soldier in post-war London ― Mail on Sunday

Fans of Grantchester will be more than delighted with the latest instalment of this historical series ... A truly engaging read ― Woman

If you love the TV series Grantchester, don't miss this captivating prequel. It reveals the backstory of how a young Sidney Chambers, carefree in London just before the Second World War, came to be the charming crime-fighting clergyman we know today ― Yours
