Publisher's Summary

You can pay a terrible price for keeping a promise....

Evelyn Taylor-Clarke sits in her chair at Forest Lawns Care Home in the heart of the English countryside, surrounded by residents with minds not as sharp as hers. It would be easy to dismiss Evelyn as a muddled old woman, but her lipstick is applied perfectly and her buttons done up correctly. Because, Evelyn is a woman with secrets, and Evelyn remembers everything. She can never forget the promise she made to the love of her life to discover the truth about the mission that led to his death, no matter what it cost her.

When Evelyn’s niece Pat opens an old biscuit tin to find a photo of a small girl with a red ball entitled "Liese, 1951" and a passport in another name, she has some questions for her aunt. And Evelyn is transported back to a place in Germany known as "The Forbidden Village", where a woman who called herself Eva went where no one else dared, amongst shivering prisoners, to find the man who gambled with her husband’s life.

A gripping, haunting and compelling story about love, courage, and betrayal set in the war-battered landscape of Germany. Fans of The Letter, The Alice Network, and The Nightingale will be hooked.

Heaps of promise .....

I really thought I would love this book and there were times when I was really intrigued by her character - but oh dear - there was so much repetition, over-detailed description, and unnecessary violence. Sadly, Eva became a boring character. With tighter editing, I'm sure readers would find this book much more interesting. By the way, the narrator's "Australian" accent and her "Polish" countess accent were hard to listen to! Otherwise her narration was enjoyable. For me this was a story with great promise, excellent moments, but sadly, in the end, disappointing.
