I downloaded this after a recommendation from audible.co.uk. It wasn’t a straightforward decision because I don’t generally “do” online book recommendations. I needn’t have worried. This is a gripping, intensely moving, evocative and wonderful – I could use more adjectives, but these give you the picture – psychological read. It’s a bit like Joanna Trollope but with barbed wire. I pulled into a layby to listen to the last three chapters and sat there with tears running down my face. It is simply magnificent – and it’s her first novel! Buy it, borrow it, ste** it (maybe not!) – but get it! End of exclamation marks.
