Profound and moving and completely original, with a storyline that is completely satisfying. It'll be one of those novels that stays in my mind forever. It's a work of art.--Craig Brown, New York Times bestselling author of 'Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret'
A wonderfully subtle and interesting account of the Mosley women, with a compelling voice.--Linda Grant, Booker Prize nominated author of 'The Clothes on Their Backs'
Wonderful, tragicomic, beautifully researched.
Eye-opening. Connolly skillfully chronicles some of the little-known consequences to those opposed to Britain's involvement in WWII, resulting in a vivid, introspective tale.
Uncanny, evocative. Connolly skillfully sets scenes in pared yet atmospheric prose.
Connolly expertly evokes a changing nation, and a woman whose life is altered forever.
Connolly's novel achieves the rare feat of at once summoning that foreign country, the past, then returning us, uncomfortably, to a contemporary Britain with a burgeoning fatherland complex.--Will Self
