A PREMIER Readers’ Award

Premier Readers’ Award is honoured to books that receive exceptional high evaluations from Chill Readers.

This book is shortlisted for Book of the Month.

Life is becoming precarious for an Anglo-German family living in England on the eve of the First World War. They have very different ideas about what they should do.

A priestly father who promotes the duty of fighting for God, King and Country. A mother who flaunts her German heritage. A son full of Nietzsche, atheism and rebelliousness. What influence can each have over the talented daughter of the family, who has ideas of her own?

Irresponsible newspapers inventing stories of German atrocities and espionage stir up hatred against the family. Will pride and their strong personalities allow them to compromise and survive?

The Corncrake is a historical novel set in 1909-10 and 1914-15. It brings to life little-known facts about ordeals far from the front line.
