Reviews

A great achievement...To take on the First World War as so very many have done and make it fresh is remarkable. -- Melvyn Bragg
Does suspense exceptionally well, and it's a book that won't leave your fingernails intact...a terrifically exciting and thought-provoking must-read -- John Harding * Daily Mail *
This perfectly constructed drama explores the moralities around unconditional love and self-preservation. And it also weaves an intricate story of redemption starting in the trenches at Passchendaele and continuing till Britain's current terror threat...storytelling at its best. * News of the World *
A fine novel; strange and unforgettable. -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
Ignites with an energy that should ensure short-listing in the next Man Booker Prize....Farndale's evocation of trench warfare surpasses Sebastian Faulks's Birdsong...Of the book's many accomplishments perhaps the strongest is the writing itself. Exquisite and luminous...Farndale gives a master class in the power of literature to illuminate the physical world and the human soul. * The Australian *
