Road home : a novel
Tremain, Rose.
Adult Fiction TREMAIN

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Tremain's novel is a tender rendering of immigrant life in Britain, with all its cultural and financial complexities, its sadness, sunshine and striving to find the road home. Juliet Stevenson is an ideal narrator; her soft, low-pitched tones lure listeners in and keep them hooked. She copes well with a wide range of male and female, British, Irish, Indian and eastern European accents with characterizations that are believable and easy to distinguish. The abridgment is exceptional; episodes seem sequential and character development clear, while musical intervals indicate omissions. A Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 21). (Feb.)

From Library Journal:

Whitbread award winner Tremain recounts the story of Lev, who, like many of his compatriots (in fact, 16,000 a month on average since 2004), flees Eastern Europe for London. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
