This is another classic Ken Follet, a suspenseful historical fiction.
The book was excellent and worth the read, however, it is not an analysis I want to share.

There were a few moments of humor. This was for me, my favorite quote, between a classy English lady Hermia (seperated by war from her fiance) and her would be suitor.

"But you know I have to get in touch with my fiance. He is the only person I can trust to help us."
"Yes"
"And I'll probably see him all the sooner in consequence."
"That suits me fine. I can't compete with a man who is trapped in a country hundreds of miles away, heroically silent and unseen, holding on to your affections by invisible cords of loyalty and guilt. I'd rather have a flesh and blood rival with human failings, someone who gets grumpy with you and has dandruff on his collar and scratches his bum."

This is relatable to anyone that has ever dated a widow or anyone who is suffering from lost love - and has heard endlessly about the loss of the sainted partner who NEVER yelled, never had bad breath and who's shit definitely did not smell.
