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.
'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
