Praise

"Wholly original and moving. . . . Portrays history as the spymaster of us all." —John le Carré

"Absorbing. . . . So realistic that it seems almost impossible that the story and all the characters are entirely fictional."
San Francisco Chronicle

"A shadowy novel, riddled with doubts and fears and suspicions that blow through the two cities and the village in a ghostly way. And it is full of beauty; fields, rivers, delicious meals and conversations." —Los Angeles Times

“What no resumé can transmit is the luminosity of this work, the magic it works on the reader as it draws one into 1942. . . . This is one of those very rare novels that you want to read again as soon as you’ve got to the end.” —The Guardian (London)
