"Ingeniously constructed … page-turner which maintains the tension … a strong sense of place; the contrast between rationed and blacked-out Oxford and the faux medieval abundance of New Haven, Connecticut is especially well done." (Observer)
"A compelling story that combines the personal traumas of war, its headline dramas and the tragic tension that can arise between them. A disturbing delight.." (A D Miller, author of Snowdrops)
