Product description

Review

"This serious and heartfelt book does deliver on its promise of a tale of how female friendship "can make the difference between living and dying"... Profound" (Brian Schofield Sunday Times)

"A harrowing but also uplifting shared story of friendship, courage and endurance" (Independent)

"A story of stunning courage, generosity and hope. They risked their lives to defeat Fascism, by printing subversive literature, hiding Jewish friends or, in the case of one girl, simply insulting a French youth because he had decided to co-operate with the Nazis. The price they paid for their bravery was terrible. A Train in Winter could have been a sad, almost morbid book. In Moorehead's expert hands it is a triumphant one" (Kathryn Hughes Mail on Sunday)

"Compassionate, meticulous and compulsively enthralling... This book is essential reading. The litany of names at the end, with their brief biographies (Yolande, Cecile, Poupette, Mitzy, Lucie...) reminds us weeping is not enough. It bears witness - and warns" (Bel Mooney Daily Mail)

"Moorehead tells her appalling story in measured prose that sets off perfectly the reader's growing sense of wonder that such heroism is possible" (Guardian)

Book Description

A moving and extraordinary book about courage and survival, friendship and endurance - a portrait of ordinary women who faced the horror of war together.
