Reviews

  • Mr Shute not only writes vividly and excitingly of occupied France, but with a delightful understanding of children

    Sunday Times
  • A small masterpiece...a book about frail but indomitable old age, simple kindness, childhood, and courage in dark confusing danger. It is not sentimental but prosaic and suspenseful on every page...it conjures up the country of the 1940's, and gently acclaims the value of ordinary decency in wicked times

    Libby Purves
  • A brilliantly descriptive writer, a master of suspense

    David Holloway
  • Exhibits his talents at their provocative best

    New York Times
  • That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is wholly deceptive...is, in fact, masterly

    H.E. Bates
