Review

Extraordinary - a must-read (Stylist)

A truly powerful book (Woman's Own)

Exciting, vividly told... The pages of this droll, fascinating posthumous memoir are fond witness to Rosemary Say's brio and quirky sense of fun (John Lahr The New Yorker)

This story of Rosie's horrifying imprisonment and daring escape is both frank and satisfyingly unsentimental (Readers' Digest)

Terrific, a most remarkable and wonderfully atypical wartime story (Barry Norman)

Her memoirs are equally understated, told in almost matter-of-fact prose which somehow makes her story all the more compelling (Daily Express)

I would recommend this book to anyone wishing for a slice of nostalgia laced with danger as it takes you back to a more innocent time yet with the most sinister of events unfolding... Such is its wide appeal I can even see this novel being made into a film (The Irish World)

A gripping story which brings home the chaotic bewilderment of the early days of Occupied France. Rosie proved herself to be both courageous and adaptable and her baptism of fire from ignorant young girl into seasoned escapee is compelling. (Elizabeth Buchan)
