You'll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail 'A gripping tale of family love, grief and forgiveness' Sunday Express 'A guilty pleasure' Daily Express 'A moving coming-of-age story' " --Heat
'as a war novel it was a real page-turner and I was hooked by the story until the very end' --Rear Party website, where it scored 4 wine glasses
'An unusual premise, with Mum going to war as an army reserve whilst dad has to stay home and keep things together. Interesting characters and the very real depiction of "life must go on" as tragedy strikes and everyone comes to terms with what's going on. Brilliant dialogue makes this a compulsive read.' --Books Monthly
"A good book which is very sad in places, it really shows you how war can change a family.
Well worth a read!" --4 out of 5 on Whatsgoodtodo.com
