Praise for The Clouds Beneath The Sun

  • Set against the panorama of the First World War, The Kissing Gates is a poignant love story, a finely woven tapestry of choice, consequence and redemption. Mackenzie Ford explores the ambiguities of the human heart with an unwavering hand, and in so doing creates a haunting and moving tale that will resonate with the reader long after he or she has finished the last page. - Pam Jenoff, bestselling author of Kommandant s Girl

  • This book is a joy to read. Wonderful period detail, and the atmosphere so convincing it had me looking out the window for Zeppelins. The First World War - with its no-man s land and valiant nurses - is disturbingly contrasted to the peaceful idyll of rural England. Even the touching love story, with a secret ticking away like a time-bomb at its heart, has us on a knife-edge of uncertainty. And Ford provides fascinating details of the thrills of the wartime intelligence world. I was swept up in this intimate and captivating story of conflicting loyalties. It s the kind of read that lingers in the mind - Kate Furnivall, author of The Russian Concubine

  • Against the background of the First World War this debut tells the tale of love against all hope, with a healthy dose of revenge - Irish Tatler
