* In a voice that is always careful, thoughtful, deliberate, she teases out the story from what is not said, from ironic or obtuse turns of phrases in sentences constrained by professional formality or egotistical defensiveness ... (Clendinnen) is above all a skilled interpreter of human behaviour. It is this psychologically astute ... approach that sets her apart as a thoroughly 21st-century historian. -- Susan Elderkin Guardian * Clendinnen revitalises out interest ... Her glimpses are less conclusive but more truthful. They leave us with the feeling that we have not got it right, and that in itself is a spring-board back into investigation. -- Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph * The story evoked is one of mystery, excitement and tension. Clendinnen's obvious passion for the subject transfers brilliantly onto the page as people and places are brought vividly to life. Big Issue * A moving, often surprising story. Scotsman * Clendinnen writes so well, with an eye for detail and character that make her a pleasure to read ... Her words dance across the page. New York Times * An extraordinary achievement. -- Robert Main * Fascinating. Transforms our understanding of history from something static into something lived. -- James Bredley Sydney Morning Herald
