Jessica Shattuck’s evocative novel The Women in the Castle offers a fresh perspective on war and its repercussions.

Shattuck uses family history to explore the lives and fate of three widows and their individual response to war.

The Women of the Castle is a novel of secrets, survival and the power of forgiveness. The Women in the Castle was inspired by Shattuck’s grandparents' experiences in Germany during World War II.

‘In this primer about how evil invades then corrupts normal existence, Shattuck delivers simple, stark lessons on personal responsibility and morality…’ Kirkus Review

’Un roman d’une grande richesse qui, à travers les personnages de trois femmes très différentes, évoque avec beaucoup d’intelligence et d’émotion la complexité de l’après-guerre en Allemagne.’ ActuaLitte.com
