Dibb's tribute to the author is honourably meant. But his crude distortions do her novel a grave disservice.

So ordinary and dully executed there's almost nothing to recommend it.

How are you with the old parleyvoo? Not so hot? Suite Franaise, the latest movie about France under the Occupation, neither.

To describe the central romance as Mills and Boon cheapens that imprint's worth. Every second World War clich is here.
