I was hooked immediately by this novel.,
This review is from: The Eighth Child (Paperback)
This review was writted by my mother Betty Greenwood and is posted on her behalf as she does not have internet access.
The narrative starts off with a horrific event when the Alan Brading's young French wife of two years is shot dead in a London street by his side. Though his father-in-law, Charles Limosin supports him through the early months of despair, eventually anger propels him to seek answers for the crime and revenge. The trail leads to events of the Second World War, the French Resistance Movement and of honour and betrayal.
It is an extraordinary `page-turner' and I stayed up until 4 o'clock in the morning to finish it. A very good read. Let's have many more.
