Book Description

10 Nov 2011

A family threatened by war but destroyed by love...

When Adina and her family are forced to flee Cologne to escape the vicious menace of German invasion in 1938, leaving their luxurious lifestyle is painful. Harder still is finding herself a refugee in a foreign country. But Adina is a compassionate and determined girl and as they settle into a new life in the Midlands she finds the strength to survive.

However, her brother and sister aren't so lucky and their family ties are stretched to breaking point. And then Adina runs the risk of losing her family forever when she is drawn towards the one man she should never fall in love with...

5.0 out of 5 stars tearjerker 18 May 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
a really good story from beginning to end, rosie brings the characters alive, you lose yourself in the story you just have to keep reading, and a real tearjerker, just make sure you have tissues handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming 9 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover
I find this book well reseaarched and if you know nuneaton you walk with Rosie from the beginning of the book right through to the end. I have read all of your books Rosie but this one really pulls at the heart strings and when you read it, its just as though you are part of it. This is a good read and the hankies should be at hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute page-turner! 31 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
Based on previous reviews I decided to take the plunge and buy this book, never having read any of Rosie's books before. I was hooked from the very first page. The personalities of the main characters were very credible and the story flowed very well. It was easy to follow without being predictable and I couldn't wait for the next opportunity for me to pick up the book. Would thoroughly recommend - buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars review of band of steel 14 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover
Whatever you do, don't think you can read this book and leave it at the end of a chapter. Rosie has once again filled this story with goings on and cliff hangers that you can't help yourself but keep reading. the research done in the writing of this book shines through as, Rosie explores the lives of a Jewish family escaping from Germany at the start of the war and weaves local wartime facts of the goings on in Nuneaton into the story. As always, the characters are fully formed and believable and the story is well paced.
Another fabulous book and a good read. Well done Rosie!
