'The story focuses on love, trust, and sacrifice, against a backdrop of the cruelty of war'
As a quaint old Norman church bathed in the late morning sunshine, a young bride waits anxiously for her groom. Anna, a German of Roma origin is stepping into a new life in London. She will finally escape the horrors of her past. When Anna flees the death camps of 1930s Germany to England, she is relieved. But events in her adopted homeland throw her best-laid plans in disarray. This is her story. It's a story about hope and heartbreak, love and hate, anger and confusion, blind prejudice and intolerance, and even redemption.
Sam Martin's gritty prose tells a sensitive story. Seamlessly, he gives a well-rounded view of the war on the home front; its claustrophobic, tense atmosphere, the prevailing opinions of the day, and the seismic decisions taken by those in power.
Just hope what happens to Anna, never happens to you.
'This novel focuses on love, trust, and the sacrifice of two lovers caught in the cruelty of war. Interweaving gritty prose which feels uncomfortable with a different, more sensitive, human component that shines through. Author Sam Martin has combined these elements seamlessly to give a well-rounded view of the war on the home front. We cannot miss the claustrophobic, tense atmosphere in this delicate work of fiction.'
Steve Johnson, Book Reviewer.

'This novel is an exploration of fate, the meaning of existence, and the strength of human relationships in times of great stress. It depicts the horrors inflicted by humans upon each other and the fragile sense of security of those times in such a way they will stay with the reader long after the book has closed.'
Sandra David, freelance Journalist
