Product description

Review

As Sam's story collides with the past, the novel slowly becomes whole, leading to an eloquent and moving ending. --Kirkus Reviews

Powerful, intelligent and moving, a very assured and intricately plotted debut novel, with a great sense of place. --Graeme Simsion, author of 'The Rosie Project' and 'The Rosie Effect'

Susan Gandar's story bridges different times, different worlds, with energy, drive and elegance. She writes with a sense of subtle wonder that her characters share with the reader, but the real mystery, as in all good storytelling, is timeless; how we live, how we love, and above all who we really are. A great read. --Michael Russell, author of 'The City of Shadows and The City of Strangers

The author does a great job of planting the reader in the gore, horror and sadness of WWI. People suffered on the Home Front, too, Jess s family in particular undergoing wrenching hardship. --The Historical Novel Society

Details about England s food shortages, the maid s household responsibilities, and the whims of the wealthy while the poor suffer add potency to an already engrossing account. As Sam's story collides with the past, the novel slowly becomes whole, leading to an eloquent and moving ending. --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Susan Gandar is the daughter of film designer and multi-Oscar winner John Box. As one of the UK's story consultants, working on shows such as 'Casualty', she became known for going after the more 'difficult' stories - at the same time successfully increasing viewing figures from 7 to 14 million. We've Come to Take You Home is her first novel.
