Readers’ Comments
‘A compelling read and very, very fast moving. The author’s prose are superb, reeling the reader in with a harrowing story of survival.’ Male reader, aged 42
‘A superb trilogy I very much enjoyed.’ Female reader, aged 54
‘Well-described, very sad in parts but with an underlying sense of ‘never give up’. Loved it.’ Female reader, aged 64
‘It is so important when authors remind us of the war and what went on. The book looks at a terrifying time in history when the Nazis were at full power and many were forced to go on the run. Chilling, often harrowing, but always personable and written from the heart.’ Female reader, aged 72
‘Not a light read; and that is its strength. Moving from the first page.’ Male reader, aged 67

‘A superbly crafted story. Powerfully written from the very first page.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
