I would have married her before I went away to war too just to make sure that someone else didn’t She was beautiful It started in her eyes and spread to the set of her mouth and the tilt of her chin In both pictures there was a confidence a courage a spirit of defiance Not the “smile though your house is rubble and you’re sleeping in a tube station” spirit of the Blitz but real steel The kind of backbone that would make you do extraordinary things Things that the rest us of wouldn’t doArty Shaw a genealogist working on a peculiarly British island in the English Channel is asked by a television company to resea I was honoured to have been sent a promotional copy of this novel in return for my honest review In actual fact I was sent the first 20 chapters first to review and then a copy of the paperback when it was launched I couldn't wait the two weeks for the paperback to find out what happened at the end and promptly purchased the full digital copy from to find out what happened with no delayWhat a novel it is It's just that good The author's imagery dances across the page in the form of elegant and confident prose waltzing the story of a good British tale swathed in rich and opulent historical fact I do particularly enjoy an author like VT Davy who knows when where and how to use a good semicolon It was also a really refreshing change to read a mystery that wasn't completely centred on murders and their investigations; I find those kind of books to be a bit 'samey' after reading so many and this was a breath of fresh airSet in the Chanel Islands the protagonist genealogist Arty has been commissioned to look into the ancestry of actress Helen Valentine for a television programme Roots which I gather is not unlike our own `Who do you think you are' I enjoyed the subtle revelations of character for both Arty and Helen dealing delicately and interestingly with the idea of Arty being transgender The story explores the period of the Second World War and the occupation of the Chanel Islands where Helen's ancestors lived at the time Delving into the subterfuge and espionage that surrounded those that stood against the Germans in any way they could get away with the novel digs into the mystery behind what happened to Helen's grandmother Kay a resistance member who disappeared seemingly into the ether after being uestioned by the Nazis and escaping The tale takes us to Dresden chasing the story of a brave woman who tried to thwart the Nazi's attempts to hoarde priceless artworks and discover a hidden bravery to the protagonist Arty that I never would have imagined The text itself is full of delightful English collouialisms all woven neatly into the tapestry of the story I really enjoyed the writing style which was very easy to read but due to carefully and artfully crafted sentences as opposed to a simplicity Without being overtly funny the writing itself seems to allude to a humorous tone that I can't uite describe accurately; I found the turns of phrase making the corners of my mouth twitch a little with inclination to smileI would sincerely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good mystery anyone who likes a good British novel or who enjoys a fantastically written book with intriguing and engaging characters
