Susan Gandar is the daughter of film designer and multi-Oscar winner John Box. As one of the UK's story consultants, working on shows such as 'Casualty', she became known for going after the more 'difficult' stories - at the same time successfully increasing viewing figures from 7 to 14 million. We've Come to Take You Home is her first novel.
'A stirring reminder of the horrors of war and a distinctive take
on the timelessness of love.' -- Kirkus Reviews
'Powerful, intelligent and moving, a very assured and intricately plotted debut novel, with a great sense of place.' -- Graeme Simsion
'Susan Gandar's story bridges different times, different worlds, with energy, drive and elegance. She writes with a sense of subtle wonder that her characters share with the reader, but the real mystery, as in all good storytelling, is timeless; how we live, how we love, and above all who we really are. A great read.' -- Michael Russell
'Details about England's food shortages, the maid's household responsibilities, and the whims of the wealthy while the poor suffer add potency to an already engrossing account. As Sam's story collides with the past, the novel slowly becomes whole, leading to an eloquent and moving ending.' -- Kirkus Reviews
