What readers are saying:
“This is a cracking read that moves along at a fair ol’ pace. A pleasant absence of long drawn out descriptive prose. The plot is easy to follow but baffling to guess where it may be going. This would make an action packed film.”
“This is a really interesting book and do not be put off if you are not a fan of war stories as it is more a story about friendship in the face of adversity. The author manages to capture the atmosphere of the snowy setting perfectly, and there are twists and turns to keep you guessing and the pages turning.”
“…the tale provides a gripping and heart-warming story with an interesting and at times challenging human element.”
“This story of the reality of war in the Ardennes in WW2 is a great novel, all the better for its exploration of the feelings of those involved, backed up by the accuracy of the author’s research and depiction of the locality and time. It really is a book that I could hardly put down… complete with twists in the plot…”
“This is a super adventure. The author’s descriptions of the cold are palpable … and the military details add to the depth of the book.”
“…the human interaction across the years was heart-warming.”
