‘Finely written, poised, acute studies of character and incident which grip and carry along the reader.’
(Evening Standard)

‘Her style is so delightful that whatever subject she chooses, the reader’s chief pleasure is in hearing her describe it ... A warm and liquid summer by a lake, the slap and sting of sea swimming, a ‘rank summer green’ night, a pregnancy ‘like a distortion’ - character, place and mood are evoked with exquisite precision.’
(Spectator)

‘Quintessential. Her usual themes are here: loneliness, love, weather, landscapes - and food ... Dunmore’s talent guarantees that the flavour lasts long after you’ve put the spoon down.’
(Observer)
