Reviews:
Cricklade Book Group, January 2012 Restless was set in Oxford in 1976 with the story of Ruth and also during the war with the story of her mother Eva, who was a British spy. The action and tension built up as the story enfolded with very vivid action scenes. It was well written with real insights into the life of a spy and the training they had. The characters were well portrayed. We had good discussion around their relationships and how there lives had affected the way they showed/ or weren’t able to show affection. We found the last couple of pages quite moving and decided that Ruth would live the rest of her life ‘looking over her shoulder’ as her mother did. A very good read.
