Readers' responses

“A page-turner. I read it in one day.”

“This was an excellent story, with unexpected twists and turns, well developed and interesting characters. The detail was fascinating – the lives, the clothes, the food were all well researched. What I found most fascinating was that the story was told from the point of view of ordinary people in Austria. I have always been intrigued to know how ordinary citizens came to terms with the way of life imposed on them, the compromises and moral decisions that people were forced to make. It was very true to life.”

“Absorbing, compelling, riveting. It was 3am and I couldn’t put it down.”

“This book was worth writing.”

“I found it really absorbing and fascinating all the way through. It’s an extraordinary story and held me strongly throughout. Very moving. She was a real fighter and survivor. I’d love to hear more about her.”

“I remember the last time I saw Ellie. Interrogating Ellie brought her to life again for me.”
