Reviews for ‘We’ve Come to Take You Home’ by Susan Gandar
“Details about England’s food shortages, the maid’s household responsibilities, and the whims of the wealthy while the poor suffer add potency to an already engrossing account. As Sam’s story collides with the past, the novel slowly becomes whole, leading to an eloquent and moving ending.” – Kirkus Reviews

Evocative scenery – I think it would make a great film as it is very visual – contrasting pictures …
Moving, and captivating.

Greatly done!, April 13, 2016 By T Brough
The book was outside of my normal genre, of blood and gore and was quite entertaining.
The notion of two people communicating, several decades apart was first introduced successfully in the movie, the Lake house (one of my favorite ever movies) and was very successfully implemented in the book.
The book was a great read and highly recommended!

TSusan Gandar’s powerful novel kept me turning the page. How and when would Jess and Sam’s lives come together? Their individual stories in different centuries brilliantly intertwined. I admit to shedding a few tears and couldn’t put it down. Congratulations Susan on an exceptional debut novel.
