Product description


PRAISE FOR AFTER THE BOMBING: Oscillating between World War II and the early Sixties, Morrall sets about evoking the war's enduring impact on those who were left behind on the home front, too young to take part yet irrevocably shaped by it nonetheless . . . an engaging story throughout. - Daily Mail

A potent evocation of the war on the Home Front and its emotional impact on the young people who survived it . . . as much a tale about identity and survival as it is about the impact of national trauma on individuals . . . Her dedication to authenticity has paid off. The novel resonates with the age - Independent on Sunday

Clare Morrall is a writer with a gift for unflamboyant but effective storytelling . . . her narrative has a cumulative power - The Sunday Times

Unusually emotional and moving . . . You'll fly through it in no time - and love every minute of this deep, engrossing experience. - Essentials

I was enchanted from the very first page. The author's descriptions of war-torn Exeter are so vivid, I felt I was there. - Good Housekeeping

PRAISE FOR CLARE MORRALL: Morrall writes with poise and delicacy - The Sunday Times

Morrall is a sure, sharp writer - Newsday

Book Description

A taut, gripping novel set in the future, when the lives of a family existing on the margins of a dramatically changed society are upset by a mysterious stranger.
