(Penny Perrick, Sunday Times)

'A marvellous novel about forbidden passions and the terrible consequences of thwarted love ... Dunmore is one of the finest English writers.'
(Val Hennessy, Daily Mail)

'A hugely involving story which often stops you in your tracks with the beauty of its writing.'

'An electrifying and original talent, a writer whose style is characterised by a lyrical, dreamy intensity.'
