Reviews

  • "'A Thread of Grace is as ambitious, beautiful, tense and transforming as any of us could have hoped.'"

    KAREN JOY FOWLER, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
  • "'Busy, noisy and heartfelt...the action moves swiftly, with impressive authority, jostling dialogue, vibrant personalities and meticulous, unexpected historical detail. The intensity and intimacy of Russell's storytelling, her sharp character writing and fierce sense of humour bring fresh immediacy to this riveting WWII saga.'"

    PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
  • "'Beautiful, noble, fascinating...Russell weaves oral and written histories and a large cast into a fast-moving story...Rich, rewarding.'"
