Review: The Hidden Sun reviewed by Beryl Clark


This is the fastest thing between covers I’ve ever read. Pamela Howarth takes us straight into the 1958 State of Emergency in Cyprus among a group of care-free girl volunteers working for NAAFI. Although they are all bent on enjoying life, we see over a period of only five days that beneath the glamour and excitement there is a constant threat from terrorists. Every piece of this intricate plot fits snugly as in a jig-saw. What’s more, it’s true ‘Fifties from speech and code of conduct right down to stocking sizes. I read late into the night, because there was never a convenient place to stop, and next day couldn’t get back to normal life till I’d finished it. Swallow it down like an oyster and you’ll be happy. Bon appetit!
