As with A God in Every Stone, Shamsie again evokes history, place and the lives of ordinary people. I was pulled into the story and the clash of lives, cultures and attitudes. Her stories are always engrossing, and help me to understand different cultures and perspectives. In Home Fires, when realisation dawned on me, it both shocked and saddened. A great read, deserving of the accolades it received.
