Farewell Leicester Square by Betty Miller
Farewell Leicester Square by Betty Miller
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
"Farewell Leicester Square" captures the essence of the 1930's without suffering from the hindsight that the war is only a few years away. It beautifully evokes the life of the family in the finest detail, set against a background of anti-semitism, not only the forces from without but also the forces within Alec himself. The book is written in a series of "scenes" much as a movie would be. Some of these are very powerful, especially that where Alec's wife visits the Harley Street gynacologist.

A real page turner.
