There’s no better way for me to celebrate “WORLD BOOK DAY” than to share this recent 5-star review from award winning author, Alison Morton.
“Stoic is the word which springs to mind when you consider the protagonist, Angelina, yet she is courageous, warm-hearted and a survivor. But the author is particularly clever in developing Angelina’s nemesis, Lidia, whose bitter, obsessive character descends into her own private hell with horrendous outcomes for anybody she encounters.
The author doesn’t take the easy way out for her characters, but shows us the twists of fate, the blank ends, and opportunities that human beings face. And this is set in a harsh time of brutal occupation with its everyday difficulties engendered by shortages, injustice, an irrationality.
The period detail is vivid and precise. I found myself shivering on several occasions at the reality of it, and I read a fair number of stories set in the Second World War. There are tender moments, ice-cold fear, triumph, despair, crushed ideals, helplessness, and redemption. But Angelina is the shining spirit in this well-written novel. Highly recommended.”

Many thanks to Alison Morton for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I am grateful for your consideration.
