Has there ever been, one wonders, a more imaginative and moving dramatization of the human cost of the divisions and destruction wreaked by Hitler s madness? Quite likely not. A flat-out masterpiece: exhilarating and unforgettable * Kirkus Review *
This excellent novel spans the entire twentieth century. De Loo interleaves the twins' story with that of two countries locked in bloody conflict. A moving read about humanity's darkest hour -- Sebastian Shakespeare * Evening Standard *
Details of time, place and atmosphere are acutely evoked, and the characters are presented with a generous sympathy that stops short of special pleading * The Times *
