    Not to be missed – a compelling and incredible read.
    Set during the Second World War in rural occupied France, a farmer discover a Jewish fugitive hiding in one of his barns. The family manage to conceal Saul for four years, while at the same time they struggle to exist, knowing that if he’s discovered they would all face certain death. The author has woven a compelling and emotional love story based around the chaos, deprivation and horrors of war. Genuinely the best book that I’ve read this year.
