Reviews

"A gripping tale of intrigue... I was enormously moved" * Observer *
"Expertly alternating vivid domestic detail with lucid exposition of the gradual evolution of totalitarianism... It feels like the book she was born to write" -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett * Guardian *
"The creepy description by the author of the naivety of the good and the seductive powers of the bad touches a nerve. A Bold and Dangerous Family is a haunting reminder of the fragility of liberty and the dangers of complaisance" -- Leanda De Lisle * The Times *
"Moorehead's book, written with sensitivity, erudition and balance, is a fine tribute to the Rosselli family" * Financial Times *
"Much has been written about life under fascist rule... But the study of a nation can never be as emotionally compelling as the study of a family... Expertly alternating vivid domestic detail with lucid exposition of the gradual evolution of totalitarianism, Caroline Moorehead allows her readers not only to know, but also to feel, how it was to endure fascist oppression... A prolific author who has always combined seriousness of purpose with a warm, human touch, she is drawn to good-hearted troublemakers... A Bold and Dangerous Family is animated by the evident admiration and affection she feels for her subjects. It feels like the book she was born to write" -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett * Guardian *
