Summary

It's 1940, Guernsey. Vivienne de la Mare waits nervously for the bombs to drop. Instead comes quiet surrender and insidious occupation. Her husband is fighting on the frontline, and her new life is one where the enemy lives next door. Small acts of kindness from one Nazi soldier feel like a betrayal. But how can you hate your enemy when you know his name, when he makes you feel alive, when everything else is dying around you?

Interesting

What a lovely story, almost found myself on the island with them. But the last few chapters were a big disappointment.

Great story in beautiful Guernsey

What made the experience of listening to The Collaborator the most enjoyable?

A well written and well researched book covering the occupation of Guernsey 1940 - 45. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was sorry to finish it.

What other book might you compare The Collaborator to, and why?

This story is in a much higher league than The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Which character – as performed by Jilly Bond – was your favourite?
