Simply a wonderful story - characters who wind themselves into your heart and a backdrop of one of the most shocking pieces of history how I wish this book had been around when I was becoming a teenager!' --Wendy Cooling
'The Things We Did for Loveby Natasha Farrant is a harrowing romantic adventure set in occupied France in 1944, but Arianne and Luc feel like a contemporary couple. The lovers are at the mercy of the precarious politics of their village, where informers and Resistance activists live cheek by jowl. Farrant's vision takes in both sides of the conflict in equal emotional depth, visiting young german soldiers who have to live with the atrocities they are ordered to commit' --Sunday's Observer New Review.
'Young adults will also be caught up by Natasha Farrant's The Things We Did for Love, set in France in the second world war. Written in an informal, accessible idiom, this small novel about young lovers Luc and Arianne packs in the big subjects of love, first sex, betrayal, resistance and military atrocity.' --Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times
