Thank you again for your talk to the AWC on Tuesday. I have heard many wonderful comments about the morning, and one or two people have also let me know how much they are enjoying the book. I wish you much luck with your admirable efforts to raise money for such a dreadful disease, and hope to be able to listen to you again if you are speaking in London.

It was lovely to see you yesterday and thank you so much for your splendid talk to the members of our Wednesday Circle about your mother’s fascinating experience in the French Resistance.

National Liberal Club
Thank you for your wonderful presentation at the Harvard Club of Boston. I know our audience greatly enjoyed and appreciated it. I'm very glad to hear that your US book tour continued on with success in NYC. It was truly a pleasure meeting you. I would love to keep in touch, and in the meantime I will continue to spread word about Andree's War. John Cornish, Chairman of the Harvard Club of Boston's Author Series
The description of your Mother’s life and exploits as a member of the French Resistance at Meet the Author this week mesmerized us all. What an amazing story. It was truly inspirational and very moving. It is not often that we sell more books than we have attendees but I am not surprised that people were so keen to buy what is a quite extraordinary story and to support such a good cause. It must be heart-breaking for you to see what has become of her clever, quick-witted mind. Susie Prtridge, Chairman The University Women's Club
Thank you very much for addressing the Senior Fellows' Society last Friday: You described your mother's contribution to the war effort brilliantly. I have already started to read the book which, like your talk, is very well written. David H.A. Jones, Chairman Senior Fellows' Society, The Royal College of Surgeons.
.. We had such a wonderful turn out and some lovely feedback which Kat will email you separately. I’m so pleased that you sold so many books too. Let me know when you write your sequel and we’ll invite you back. Nicki Davis, Events Manager, Roehampton Club.
Many thanks for your excellent performance yesterday, all the feedback was very good. They were all interested in your story and as you noticed very engaged in the subject. We had a good turnout, I think they said about 140 ladies, which is very good. Anna Groot, Chairman of the Kensington and Chelsea Women's Association
.. It was fascinating hearing about your mother and her exploits as well as those of your uncle. The talk was everything we expected and more. There is no doubt that the young people who took part in these resistance lines were very special people. Vanessa Ilsley, President, The British Association of Monaco. .. Thank you again for your excellent talk at the Club last night which, as I hope was apparent from the reaction of all those present, was much enjoyed. I meant what I said when I stressed how having a direct personal connection with the individuals involved can bring the facts of any story to life in a unique way.
