Reviews

'You know that moment when the ingenue in the horror movie heads downstairs to check the radiator, and you're screaming, dumbfounded, at the screen? That's the sort of protective rage you feel for Daley Amory, the narrator of Lily King's novel Father of the Rain.' Elle 'King is a beautiful writer' New York Times 'Spellbinding... You won't be able to stop reading this book.' Vanity Fair 'It's impossible not to be drawn in' Daily Mail 'Masterful... Heart-breaking... I wanted to shut my eyes, and couldn't because I couldn't stop reading. When I finished, I cried for us all.' Sarah Blake, author of The Postmistress
