Professional reviews

"‘A tumultuous, passionate, fierce story of wartime love’ DAILY EXPRESS ‘This is a powerful novel of depth and intensity, and one that subtly changes mood from cocktail- and opium-fuelled larks to despair and degradation’ SUNDAY TIMES ‘The Harbour is an exceptional first novel: an intelligent romance immersed in its historical setting, and with a thread of steel running through it…We need more love stories like this.’ LOUISA YOUNG"
