Jersey, June 1940: it starts after the bombs land, obliterating the last shred of hope that Hitler will avert his attention from the Channel Islands.
Within weeks 12,000 German troops land on the Jersey beaches. For 10-year-old Claudine, it means a reeducation under German rule, and for Maurice it means protecting his sick wife at all costs. These memorable characters take you on a journey through the war that you will not forget.

"The writing is beautiful. The characters' growing affinities, and the complications those relationships brings with them, make for fascinating reading." (Cecelia Ekback, author of Wolf Winter)
This may well have been a great book but sadly I couldn't cope with the narration. The delivery was painfully slow, so much so, that it made it impossible for me to follow the story. I listened to about half an hour but then applied for a refund.
