This book is such a compelling and heartbreaking look at fallout of war and the racial hatred inflicted upon the Windrush generation. Levy's characters are so beautifully drawn and their interactions so genuine, I was wholly absorbed in this fantastic novel. It's one of those books I think everyone should read.
