“'War-torn' describes so many things in Amanda Hodgkinson's novel - countries, people, and relationships. Janusz and Silvana are a young couple living in Warsaw when World War II begins and they are forced to part ways, he to join the army, and she to flee the city with their infant son. Janusz is soon separated from his unit and makes his way to England. When the couple and their son, now virtual strangers, are reunited in London at war's end, the long, and at times painful, process of rebuilding their broken lives begins. A stunning debut.”
— Jessie Martin, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI
