Reviews

Tatler
'Vibrant... Hislop brings history to life in this compelling tale'
Woman & Home
Hislop brings her consummate storytelling skills to this enthralling tale of love, marriage and a community all put to the test
Independent on Sunday
One of the best things about this novel is the way Hislop depicts the growing teamwork, love, respect, and trust which two families of opposite persuasions manage to establish... Hislop hasn't of course been into Famagusta - no one may, even now - but has stood near the barbed wire and imagined what life was like there, then and now, with her usual gift for presenting bits of history most of us are unfamiliar with from a fictional point of view
Essentials
Heartbreaking... A fascinating insight into a part of Mediterranean history that isn't often explored
Sunday Mirror
Fascinating
Woman
Hislop's writing effectively weaves the personal into the political without ever becoming overbearing. An informative but equally emotional read
Daily Mail
An imaginative tour de force, and a great read
