    Exquisite!

    A beautiful haunting story of an abandoned son and daughter during the war time. The mystery of their Mother's disppearance and resurfacing, the truth and falsehoods of undergroung espionage and the tender moments that sew lives back together with astonishing regret kept me glued to the book. Michael Ondaatje is a master story teller with voices and thoughts that ring true. His meticulous research is transports the reader in to some fascinating and surprising places. Another winner for Mr. Ondaatje!

    A tour DE force!

    The reader has to wonder at the dedication of an author to produce a work like this. The research that must have beenundertaken, the ability to put words together so they catch our interest, and much more. And I .earned a lot about what was happening in those war a d postwar days. Read it you,like it.

    A complex and elegantly told novel

    This is a book that grabs you from the first paragraphs. It highlights a very intriguing time in British history. The characters are very strong and original.
