A very contemporary twist on WW2 courage,
Willow is 22 an Art student at Glasgow school of Art, brought up in the Channel Island of Jersey by her Russian Jewish Grandmother Katarina. Ever since she was very tiny she has always painted beautiful watercolours, but her black and white drawings are raw and violent and she has no idea where they come from.
When her Grandmother dies Willow becomes her own time portal into a past where she discovers that memories still haunt the present, from pre War Paris through the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands to the content of her Artwork.
We find that love does survive, that heroism has an impact on the lives of future generations and somehow the ghosts that haunt us can be finally laid to rest once their story has been told.
‘’This is a must have book. The narrative drive and final twist combined with strong characterization make this novel quietly brilliant and will have you wanting to read more and more’’
