Review:

Instantly involving, full of drama, sadness and atmosphere - a wonderful read. * Woman and Home * [An] addictive family saga... Giles Waterfield writes with insight and compassion, and a deep love for the wonderful German culture that was nearly blotted out by the Nazis. -- Kate Saunders * The Times * Kept me spellbound... The book is written with Vermeer-like delicacy. Each scene is beautifully constructed with masterly restraint; much is left for the reader to intuit... Mr Waterfield's genius is to make us care for his characters as their world dissolves... As soon as I closed the book, I wanted to read it again. * Country Life * A spirited novel... explores notions of duty, love and betrayal through the prism of two families. * Literary Review * From the outset The Iron Necklace has all the ingredients you would expect from a sweeping dynastic World War story... A thoughtful, dispassionate look at how the war affected one family. * Belfast Telegraph * An atmospheric, tender first novel * Good Housekeeping * An almost perfect first novel * Daily Telegraph on The Long Afternoon * A fascinating psychological portrait of a marriage * Daily Mail on The Long Afternoon *
