Review quote

This moving collection of ordinary men and women's stories chart the joys and unbearable tragedies of the aftermath of the First World War.

It's a tall order, but Clive Mantle and Patience Tomlinson are equal to it. They're superb ... An extraordinarily moving book, Kleenex essential. GUARDIANshow more
