Notes:
It's 1944 and Flora Knox is enjoying a spring morning in the Swiss mountains, waiting for a train. Having been educated in Switzerland, Flora has been unable to return home to the UK since the outbreak of war, much to her delight. As Flora watches, a cattle train draws closer to the station, pulling a fleet of slatted trucks behind. But the trucks don't contain animals. From within come the sounds of humans, groaning, pleading, on a desperate journey across the Swiss countryside. Horrified, Flora runs to the train as it slowly clatters through the station, and as she does so, a filthy bundle of rags is pushed out into her arms. Through the slats of the train, she hears a desperate plea: 'Take him. His name is Simon'. As the train disappears, Flora is left holding a tiny baby boy. Everything looks just the same as it did moments before - the sun, the sky, the station - but nothing will ever be the same again.

Jessica Lee is someone I haven't come across before (my fault entirely) and this book shows just what I've been missing. I loved the way she spanned the generations as our heroine grows up. A nice easy read, this was one book I had difficulty putting down.
