What happened in summer 1963? And how it is linked to summer 2013?
I was eager to read Smith's latest book, as I loved Child 44 and yet I was not sure how much I'll like it because the last book in the trilogy was a disappointment.
The Farm was better than I expected. A well written page turner as Child 44 but also with more layers then that.
And more personal. Few years ago, Smith's father phoned to tell him he suspected his mum was mentally ill. Hours later, she arrived in Britain.
