We sent advance proofs to members of our mailing list; here is a selection of their comments so far:

This is a novel about love, disappointment, secrets, lies, commitments and forgiveness. If you want to know whether it’s “unputdownable”, well, I read it in one sitting. Highly recommended.’ Sue Creed
‘A charming and gentle novel about memory, acceptance and forgiveness … Beautifully and lyrically written, but never sentimental or overly romantic, this is a heart-warming book’ Mandy Jenkinson
‘I absolutely loved it … easy to read, fast paced and extremely interesting … I was so engrossed in it on my way home on the tube that twice I missed my stop!’ Maureen Julian
‘Very engaging and accessible … The People in the Photo should appeal to anyone who is interested in family history and the puzzling possibilities of photographs’ Lesley Styles
‘A page-turner … I got involved with the characters and the mystery of their past.  I liked the correspondence format and it was well-crafted, unfolding the story bit by bit’ Janice Brown
‘I was so involved in their quest that I could not stop turning the pages and I read the book in a day. This is a moving story of love lost and love found, a tragic past and a hopeful future. Its final words will linger in my mind.’ Jean Marshall
‘It held my attention well throughout and I was kept guessing to the very end.’ Sylvia Davies
‘I really enjoyed this book….. It has a love story (or two), history and mystery all rolled in to one ! I found it hard to put down and read it over a couple of days. Very unusual and highly enjoyable.’ Helen Bennewith
‘I would recommend it to anyone who likes history’ Emma Howie
