* "I share a flat with someone I met through the BBC. I'd known him a year and been sharing for months before I discovered he was Jewish. I could never tell my parents that"
*"His parents had foud the idea of their son sharing with a Christian -as they'd assumed- distressing beyond belief. Ahmed had laid it on about Oxford, Jake's parents being dons, and their beautiful Georgian home. He was always made welcome and regretted missing a weekend with them"
*"Having the run of the house one afternoon, ... , Ahmed had opened a door on to a study and been about to close it when he noticed a row of gilt-lettered titles in Hebrew in a wall of bookshelves. A little more snooping and the facts became clear. His immediate reaction had been a sense of alienation and letdown; Jack not telling him had felt like an infidelity. Had it seemed irrelevant? Had he just not thought about it? But then would Jack really have had a clue about a Muslim upbringing in a closed community whose ways and traditions bred deep suspicion if not outright hatted of Jews?
The friendship had stood the test and pulled aside that iron curtain of drummed-in prejudice and mistrust".
This book is the first book I read for Sandra Howard, She has booked a place on my bookshilves, it definitely won't be the last.
Had I known this when looking at the preview I would not have chosen the book and I shall not be reading any more by this author for this reason.
Quite disappointed in the author's decision to allow the characters to swear when this was not needed within the storyline itself.
I did not feel that this storyline was very relastic at all, the characters were quite badly drawn, and she seemed to rely on the previous book's characters to carry her through, very very disappointing.

Sandra Howard writes a good story and her background research is excellent. Although the ending was predictable, it didn't turn out exactly as I expected, so full marks!Published on 4 Mar. 2014 by Helen Deverill
This started out as a fairly promising escapist read, ideal for the end-of-year holiday period which was when I was reading it: topical subject and an author who, by virtue of her... Read morePublished on 31 Dec. 2012 by Impulsia
