Review:

Ann Widdecombe's impressive novel...... Widdecombe skilfully and often movingly uses the boy's struggle with his own painful history to throw light on the troubled years between 1945 and the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. -- Margaret Walters * THE SUNDAY TIMES * It's a good read with a convincing plot -- Anne Sebba * THE JEWISH CHRONICLE * she can spin a good story.... warm in tone and wryly observant. -- Kate Saunders * THE TIMES *
