Review: RESISTANCE by Owen Sheers

Sandy at You’ve Gotta Read This! recently reviewed Owen Sheers’ Resistance for the WWII Challenge.  Here’s some of what she had to say:

In an alternative WWII in 1944, Germany has invaded Britain and has occupied a vast majority of the country.  . . . Sheers artfully introduces various themes of resistance into the story. There are the British resistance fighters waging their solitary war against the Germany army, which we expect. But we also sense the wives’ resistance in believing they truly have been left alone forever by their husbands.

Review: RESISTANCE by Owen Sheers

resistancesheersGavin from Page247 recently posted a review of Resistance by Owen Sheers.  Here’s a snippet:

Resistance by Owen Sheers is based on the premise that D-Day failed and that Germany invaded Great Britain.  The author, a poet, grew up in the area where the story takes place and this shows in the writing.  It is highly descriptive and quite beautiful, weaving the history of the land, a valley on the Welsh border,  with the lives of it’s people.  It is also a description of an occupation and the consequences of war.
