Island Madness

£2.49 Out Of Stock

Product description

'The island in question is Guernsey, during the German occupation in the Second World War, and the book itself is part thriller, part love story, and wholly engrossing on the subject of occupation and its moral choices. Who can be confident today how he or she would have behaved under such circumstances?' Antonia Fraser, Books of the Year, Sunday Telegraph 'How close is the relationship between menace and protection, how powerful the seduction of treachery and how intense the relationships forged in the crucible of a small island are vividly demonstrated by Binding. . . a novel of rewarding subtlety and insight into the best and worst of human nature' Jane Shilling, The Times 'Tim Binding is a very clever writer. . . As a murder- mystery, this is immensely readable. But it is much more than that. . . a thought-provoking study of men and women in a time of madness' Simon Linnell, Daily Telegraph 'Binding captures the essence of life under occupation with fine description of character and a taut plot. . . There are heart-stopping twists and turns in the way in which people behave and react. . . This is high-class fiction: tense, compassionate, surprising and moving' Catherine Pepinster, Independent on Sunday

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
