loyalty and the quiet heroism of ordinary people in extraordinary
times. * Daily Mail *
This book is complete heaven, read solo or with its predecessors. Lissa Evans writes characters that are so vividly alive that they feel like old friends. A gorgeous, word-perfect, deeply pleasurable novel to lose yourself in. * India Knight *
At once funny and moving: the brisk kindness of the wardens will bring a lump to your throat. I could not have loved it more. * Susie Steiner *
