‘Helen Dunmore beautifully fulfils the highest function of a storyteller - to make you wonder what will happen next ... The denouement is mesmerising ... One goes on addressing the problems of evil which Dunmore raises, long after one has finished her electrifying book.’
(Sunday Times)

‘The plot unfolds with both tension and inevitability as Dunmore plays off past against present, rubs together contemporary themes of urban corruption with far-off memories of taboo passion ... Burning Bright is a beautifully constructed and thought-provoking novel, with a freshness that makes it outstanding.’
(Sunday Telegraph)

‘A seductive narrative illuminated with instants of visionary clarity.’
(The Guardian)
