A memorable, and evocative memoire of life in Northern France under the Nazi occupation. A real pager turner, I found myself hanging onto every word, and could hardly put down this beautifully written account. Though it is clear that even now a few events are almost too painful to describe, some other incidents are by turns amusing and thought provoking. I must thank Stephen Grady (with the superb, light touch of Michael Wright) for reminding me of how very lucky so many of us post war children are, and how much we really do owe to those who suffered so much during the war, without the benefit of knowing its eventual outcome.
