  • [Anna Bentinck's] ability to vocally express in her voice the age of the various family members is outstanding --- everyone from the children to the dowager Aunt Gwendolyn. Bentinck captures the emotions expressed by the various characters as they react to the horrors of war and the realities of the extermination of the Jews. The author’s praise of the stoicism of the British people is boundless as she extols the strength and inspiration of Winston Churchill by including quotes from several of his best known speeches."
