Exposure by Helen Dunmore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Set yourself in a time zone of the 1960's when the Cold war was at its peak. Then you are in the mindset of how to read this story.
You don't know if your friend can be trusted or neighbour is who they say they are.
This has a spy 'taste' about it because of its era and time zone.
A file goes missing. Its Top Secret.
Lilly's husband Simon is blamed for this.
Here starts not only the nightmare for Simon, but for his wife and children and all those that know him.
Helen Dunmore is a brilliant author that focuses more on people and the interwoven effects of that rather than the plot. The plot is excellent, but the people involved are more the peak of the excellence of this her story telling.
