A Polish family is reunited in Ipswich in 1946 after the war, but it is not easy for the partners to come to terms with the secret lives each has led for the past 6 years. There is also a young boy who does not know his father. The book has also been well reviewed in the USA.
"impressively structured", Catherine Taylor, The Guardian.
"an effecting story, extremely well told", Kate Saunders, The Times.
"Hodgkinson writes with a stilted charm that perfectly conveys her charactersí inability to build bridges between the chasms of experience that divide them", Lucy Scholes, The Sunday Times.
