Reviews

"A pin-sharp biography which unfurls like gripping fiction... wonderful, haunting, thought-provoking" -- Melanie Reid * The Times * "I have not read a better portrait of the moral impossibility of that time and place for people, like Priscilla, who found themselves trapped in it... A wonderful book" * Daily Telegraph * "As Shakespeare acknowledges, his aunt's is one of millions of wartime stories. But thanks to the extensive paperwork, and his energetic digging, he creates a detailed and vivid narrative. This is a moving, and constantly surprising story" -- Matthew Bell * Independent on Sunday * "So gripping it reads like a novel" -- Rachel Johnson * Evening Standard * "This mysterious story of the Occupation in France has all the qualities of a fascinating novel, with exquisite social, sexual and moral nuance" -- Antony Beevor
