"A powerful and absorbing novel that pulls you deep into the troubled war years of its young heroine. Love and loyalty are the book's real themes, and the manipulation of the innocent. Brilliantly done." (Esther Freud)
"A moving portrait of a girl forced to come of age in a world at war." (Sunday Times)
