LoveReading Says

This historical novel celebrates the courage of women as it weaves between two of the most fascinating periods in our more recent history. Celia and Anya are linked yet live in two different times, Celia is concerned about nuclear war while Anya fights to stop the war she is living in. Author Louise Fein’s LoveReading Star Book debut People Like Us was followed by The Hidden Child, she researches history and then slides her story into that time, making it intimate and believable. Relationships feature strongly, along with a provocative and powerful plot. While two timeframes dwell within this novel, the main tale lives with Celia in London during 1962 and the Cold War. The second story takes place during the Second World War, every now and then it pierces the first, creating waves of understanding and emotion. While the part the men play is vital, and each of them feels vital and vibrantly alive, it is the women who remain the focus. Espionage and hidden politics feature in both stories, you can feel the history of the time, and the 60’s in particular casts a colourful and vivid spell. The blend of relationship, both romantic and family, and espionage is wonderfully balanced and so this has been chose as a Liz Pick of the Month. The London Bookshop Affair is an emotionally and historically fascinating novel that tells an intimate story within the huge scope of war.
