MEDIA REVIEWS

This sombre and distinguished book is as fine a piece of storytelling as you are likely to read this year. - The Guardian

Mal Peet, who won the Branford Boase Award in 2004 for Keeper, has written a complex and rewarding novel which is two stories in one. Peet moves effortlessly and skilfully between the 1940s and the present and the characters are strong and well-drawn. Terrific stuff. - TES Teacher

This is an outstanding novel. Outstanding in every regard. It establishes Peet as a novelist of immense gift and versatility, for no two novels could be more different than Keeper and Tamar and yet be so equally brilliant ... Utterly convincing. - www.achuka.co.uk

… one of the very best novels I have encountered in recent years. - Siobhan Parkinson, INIS

"A fascinating and complex story, set against the backdrop of the Nazi occupation of Holland. Beautifully crafted, with a finale that took my breath away, this is simply unforgettable." - Publishing News
