Resistance opens in 1944, as the women of a small Welsh farming community wake one morning to find that their husbands have gone. Soon after that a German patrol arrives in their valley. In his hugely anticipated debut novel, Owen Sheers has produced a beautifully imagined and powerfully moving story of love and loss.

Critic Reviews

Brilliant first novel... a gripping story of unexpected love and friendship in which Sheers captures the feeling of people under pressure and also excels in his descriptions of the valley's landscape. Let us hope that this is just the first of many memorable novels.
