4.0 out of 5 stars A saga of life in France under the German occupation, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the wartime background and the conflicts of loyalty which ensued. The plot of this story was not as clear as the previous parts of the trilogy.the sexual nature of the killing did not add very much to the story although it may have added to the sales value. The next book in the series will provide a n interesting insight into Liberation France and th resolution of the family dilemmas.A thoughtfully written book elegently expressed. I like the Allan Massie style of understated tension among the varied group of personalities.
