About this book
A thrilling and emotionally intense novel set in a World War Two where Britain has been invaded. For fans of Sebastian Faulks and William Boyd, it's a gripping portrait of a community under siege, and a moving depiction of unexpected love and friendship. There will be a massive publicity campaign for this paperback edition, with author tour, events and media coverage. 'The arc of the plot has a long, slow burn, but it flames brilliantly at the end.' Ingrid Wassenaar, "The Daily Telegraph"
The women of a small Welsh farming community wake one morning to find that their husbands have gone. Soon after that a German patrol arrives in their valley.
