Boissery clearly knows her history. The fact that she is an authority on the subject is, from an educational standpoint, reassuring. The construction of characters such as Sophie and Luc helps to make the historical content accessible and understandable.
Boissery manages to incorporate that historical and geographical knowledge into the story in a manner that provides an authentic and generally appropriately gloomy, challenging backdrop to the main story events
