Second read and still hooked! I absolutely loved this series. I don’t often re-read books but this one deserved that. I really liked the strong female characters and a story that portrayed what happened when you put together brilliant minds in a supportive team.
“None Stood Taller” – what a great story! I’ve read all three books. I have loved every minute of this reading. Such exceptional writing! My parents lived through WW2; I have been connected to this story through them. The characters seem real, and some are real. The excitement is unending in these books! You will love these books when you have finished them! Highly recommended!
Hypnotic! Could not stop reading these books. Great characterisation. Gave a history lesson for all of us to learn. And good insight into people who lived through this terrible war.
On my list of favourite contemporary authors! I must confess that I read the 1st novel in this series without knowing anything about the author. I was blown away to discover that the author is a man, believing that only a woman would be able to so convincingly portray this protagonist. I was reluctant to even start the book, as I have read so many WW2 novels and even discussed with my book club members that it was getting pretty tiresome. Bravo Mr Turnham! This is a brilliant account of that conflict and it touched me deeply. You are now on my list of favourite contemporary authors. J Grimes
“None Stood Taller, The Price of Freedom”. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, during my second reading! Its underlying message of the price of freedom is so current in today’s society (2024). Its final question asking how much you are willing to do for your country’s freedom is particularly thought-provoking and an essential question which every freedom-loving citizen must ask themselves. Through the story the author helps the reader understand the consequences of how one answers. I recommend this book be read and discussed by every school age child as it might help reveal the cost of true freedom – and what is real freedom! Sad to say many of today’s youth are not aware of what true freedom is or what the price of its loss will be.

Thoroughly absorbing book, I couldn’t put it down.
Excellent, I’ve learnt such a lot from the three books.
Each girl has a story of tell; they were so brave in different ways. I’ve recommended them to my friends and am looking forward to your next one.
These 3 books have had me totally enthralled. It was a roller coaster of emotion. The characters almost became family as you followed them through all their journey. I feel quite sad to come to the end but I will certainly follow this author.
