Tamar by Mal peat

Winner of the 2006 Carnegie Medal, Tamar is a beautifully written emotionally charged thriller, set partly in Holland during the Second World War and partly in contemporary Britain.  In some senses it is a coming of age novel where a young woman sets out to uncover the mystery of her grandfather’s apparent suicide, however the author skilfully weaves this with the story of two agents dropped into war torn Holland charged with a mission to unite the disparate factions of the resistance.  When things go dramatically awry, the subsequent betrayal echoes down the generations.
