What a good read. Enjoyment and interest turned to excitement and insistent page turning. A gripping plot, characters so real that you feel you know them and a fascinating period of recent history is a great combination. Also,the sense that much of this fiction was based on fusty but genuine documents and memories from a generally little visited corner of history gave the story a stong feeling of reality. Great stuff!
