Reviews

A classic, whose resonance deepens inside the reader in proportion to its austere, luminous discretion. Also, as it happens, a work of high, frequent comedy. As an act of imagined history this novel has few rivals * The Times Literary Supplement *
A spellbinding piece of historical fiction-spare, luminous. . . . One starts rereading as soon as one has reached the last page * The Sunday Times *
A magnificent recreation of the life of a medieval convent * The Daily Telegraph *
