Their Finest Press Reviews

'[Lissa Evans] displays a fine eye for detail and for the absurdities involved in filming. She also brilliantly evokes the disruption and dangers of wartime London. This funny, heart-warming and beautifully crafted novel is a must-read' Daily Mail

'Beautifully written, minutely observed and researched, evocative and very funny tale' -- Michele Hanson Guardian

'Comic, poignant and altogether delightful, raised spirits are guaranteed' Easy Living

'This is a comic novel, but far warmer in tone and broader in scope than that label would suggest...Gloriously observed...Hilliard is a wonderful creation - and Evans's recreated propaganda scripts are a total joy. Delicious' The Times

'Pitch-perfect in tone and populated by some unforgettable characters, Lissa Evans's blackly comic new novel is a delight' The Gloss Magazine
