Early praise for The Woman From Saint Germain
‘This book is a dream. Eleanor Gorton Clarke is a character whose presence lingers long after the last page is turned. Brave yet vulnerable, intelligent yet fiercely moral, she’s a woman of her time and ours, a heroine rarer than a first edition of Finnegan’s Wake. I’d follow her anywhere.’ Lauren Chater, bestselling author of The Lace Weaver
‘Between liberty and death you can find a fellow traveller. A necessary murder, a race to freedom, James Joyce and a bookshop set the stage for a tautly paced and thrilling chase that hurls you towards a revelatory finish.’ Marta Dusseldorp
‘A thrilling game of cat and mouse and an unlikely alliance drive a desperate race across Nazi-occupied France.’ Tania Blanchard, bestselling author of The Girl from Munich
