Anmeldelser

«The lovers at the centre of Wendy Moore's dynamic dual biography upend any preconceptions the reader might bring to their story...A rip-roaring story characterised by old-fashioned courage»

Hephzibah Anderson, Daily Mail

«Richly researched...an invigorating and engaging tale, well fed by diaries and letters, and told with an unpretentious, straightforward energy of which the subjects themselves would approve»

Libby Purves, TLS

«Had Wendy Moore been writing a novel, she could hardly have invented more fabulous leading characters than Vera 'Jack' Holme and Evelina 'Eve' Haverfield or have set her narrative in a time of greater drama...In Moore's pacey narrative, their astonishing lives once again demonstrate not only how women could seize power for themselves, but also the value of their much-underestimated resources»

Literary Review

«This is a story about resistance, about the refusal to conform or capitulate, and one which should inspire all women aware of how far we still have to go to be treated as men's equals. Reading the book was like taking a cool shower after a hot day»

Spectator

«I wish Jack and Eve were still alive today. It is fearlessly energetic women like them who make the world a better place. It needs more Jack and Eves. Fortunately, in Wendy Moore's riveting biography they live again to tell their story and inspire a new generation to be bold and true»

Amanda Foreman

«An astounding untold story about women's role in the thick of the fighting in the First World War. I had no idea so many women boldly volunteered for such hardship. In telling Jack and Eve's love story, Wendy Moore reveals a whole lesbian culture hidden in plain sight amid death and daring.»

Polly Toynbee, author of AN UNEASY INHERITANCE

«An astonishing love story of two true pioneers - Jack and Eve are extraordinary vital characters, brilliantly brought back to life by Wendy Moore. Politically and sexually way ahead of their time, they were also indefatigably courageous, both physically and morally. Wendy Moore has also shed genuinely fresh light on a little known aspect of the First World War and the role of two extraordinary women running hospitals in the Balkans. A remarkable and utterly compelling tale»

James Holland, author of THE SAVAGE STORM

«Once more, Wendy Moore proves she is unrivalled when it comes to shining a light on history's hidden figures. In JACK AND EVE, Moore gives us not one but two genuine trailblazers whose lives are worthy of a Hollywood biopic. This is nonfiction at its best. »

Lindsey Fitzharris, author of THE FACEMAKER
