Now she has used these books as the basis for a fresh and fascinating look at the German Occupation of the Channel Islands during World War 2.

Going back through the official records and interviewing the survivors of that difficult time in Jerseys history, she tells the story of a people controlled but never ground down, of public defeats and private victories, of unexpected friendships and impossible love affairs, of extraordinary escapes under the soldiers noses.

She records, with telling and occasionally humorous details, the resilience of ordinary people thrown into prison for the slightest infraction, the variety of other prisoners they met there - including not only American servicemen but also rebellious German soldiers. This is a book not only for readers interested in the Second World War and Jerseys part in it, but for anyone who wishes to be inspired by the indomitability of the human spirit.
