An Evocative New Novel,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Place Of Strangers (Paperback)
A beautifully written and well researched novel in which we are effortlessly transported between the calm and beauty of present day Shropshire countryside and the ravages and concentration camps of war-torn Central Europe.
It tells the story of a man searching for his past in which he has to peel back layer after layer of duplicity, heartbreak and betrayal before he can find the truth.
A book written with intelligence, acute observation and all the more powerful for the author's instinct for understatement despite, from time to time, passages of almost lyrical intensity.
