A beautifully descriptive novel of life in wartime France, dealing with how people cope with adversity: no one should judge the actions that are taken to survive. Roberts pulls you into the life of each character only to move you into another’s world just when you are making up your mind about them.

As the story develops you find it hard to actually like any of the characters, in particular Marie-Angele as the story weaves between her, Jeanne and Andree. A great read and a perfect book group book, there’ll be lots to discuss!
