Reviews
Both heart-warming and heart-wrenching, this novel will captivate the senses and make you laugh as well as cry. Brimming with incredible, quirky characters and beautiful, lyrical writing, The Autumn of the Ace is the ideal book for lovers of historical fiction--Carmen Coetsee, South African

An epic, touching book about what love can do. It's heartening stuff... If you wish to mark the drawing in of winter evenings with something romantic, adventurous, well researched and engrossing - a story full of life and warmth and also a robust philosophy of love and redemption - then de Bernières is, as ever, your man.--The Times

A charming, old-fashioned read - just the novel for a spell in lockdown--Scotsman

A compelling and moving conclusion to a saga with epic scope--Anthony Gardner, Mail on Sunday
