Shadows of the Past by Maggie Cobbett

We are in a time of remembrance and commemoration and too often we can be caught up in the flag waving and nostalgia. Then along comes a book that graphically, and violently, reminds us of wartime, invasion and resistance.

A small community carries the collective pain of occupation - and perhaps never recovers. Intertwined with the flashbacks of wartime mystery and misery are new intrigues and puzzles.

Rather than risk revealing a plot by hinting at clues, I'm deliberately keeping this review short. But I must add that I was particularly moved by how the author depicted the wartime sections.
