"'It is Russell's triumph...a language of intimacy, comedy, punchy action and sheer sublimity...[her] magnificent novel is a testament on behalf of persecuted people, which observes its pledge to testify in a spirit of sympathy and gratitude'" * GUARDIAN * "'The Holocaust became the catalyst for the human spirit's worst and finest hour, and Russell's book deals with both...captures history without being over-bearing and gives hope without sermonizing'" * GOOD BOOK GUIDE * "'Ambitious, beautiful, tense and transforming'" * KAREN JOY FOWLER, author of The Jane Austen Book Club * "'Busy, noisy and heartfelt...the action moves swiftly, with impressive authority, jostling dialogue, vibrant personalities and meticulous, unexpected historical detail.
