Our customer reviews

<p>Based on the true story of <em>The Angel Makers of Nagyrev</em>, about a group of women living in Hungary in the early part of the 20th century, the problems in Jessica Gregson's novel begin when the men of the village go off to fight in the First World War and in their absence are replaced by some rather dashing, smooth-talking prisoners. When the husbands return they find that they are somewhat outclassed in the charm department and the women have some decisions to make. Gregson presents this fictional account from a very sympathetic point of view. The scenes of domestic violence and the imbalance of power it creates in any relationship has a real latter-day resonance and the reader is cleverly steered into being completely onside for the retribution. This is a great, unputdownable read which will have you rushing to look up some background on the original events which history, as you can well imagine, sees from a very different perspective than the one presented in this fine novel.</p> <p><a href="http://dovegreyreader.typepad.com" target="_blank">Lynne Hatwell</a></p>show more
