  • Heart-wrenching . . . convincing and intoxicating . . . Julia is a very English Anna Karenina . . . An unromantic love story that feels honest and searing.

    The Times
  • Vivid, candid, engaging. So honest.

    Helen Dunmore
  • What makes this story stand out is its absolute honesty. There is no false sentimentality, plenty of unflinching observation and some excellent writing . . . her detail is truly superb. Wartime Britain has been rarely so skilfully evoked.

    Daily Mail
  • Beautifully observed and written, I loved it.

    Woman and Home
  • Elizabeth Wilhide writes about universal emotions with great tenderness and imagination.

    Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days
  • I adored this book . . . touching and very compelling.

    Penny Vincenzi on Ashenden
  • A rich and absorbing social history

    Financial Times on Ashenden
