'A gripping, immensely satisfying novel with a twist in the tale' Red 'Wrapped in the roots of the sycamore was a skeleton; the remains of a woman, between twenty-five and thirty. She had carried a child . . .' At the close of the Second World War, Intelligence Officer Gus Clifton returns to London. On his arm is Krista, the German wife he married secretly in Berlin. For his sisters, this broken woman is nothing more than the enemy. For Nella, Gus's loyal fianc?e, it is a terrible betrayal. These three friends wonder what hold Krista has over decent, honourable Gus. And, they ask themselves, how far will they have to go to permanently get her out of their home, their future, their England? PRAISE FOR THE NEW MRS CLIFTON 'Buchan brilliantly captures the blighted atmosphere of blitzed London' Daily Mail 'The tension is palpable and the atmosphere claustrophobic. Buchan vividly conveys the mood of a post-war London brought to its knees. A powerful and emotional read' Sunday Express 'I loved this story of post-war adjustment which sets up a mystery on the first page' Cathy Rentzenbrink, Stylist 'So so good. Great writing, great story. I could not put it down' Marian Keyes This 2017 Penguin books, limited Paperback is in Good condition.
