Reviews

Praise for THE HEROES' WELCOME:

'Fierce and tender, The Heroes' Welcome depicts heroism on the grand scale and the importance of the tiniest act of courage' Observer

'Young possesses in abundance emotional conviction, pace and imaginative energy, and these qualities will draw readers with her through time and space, as she unfolds the story of the Lockes and Purefoys on their journey through the 20th century' Guardian

'If you read one novel about the effects of the First World War this year, make it this one. It has brain with its brawn and deserves a hero's welcome' The Times

'A moving exploration of the war's toll on a generation...deeply affecting' Metro

'A brilliant, passionate, intense examination of what it is to survive a war and to negotiate a peace with a body and mind that have been irrevocably altered' Elizabeth Buchan

Praise for MY DEAR I WANTED TO TELL YOU:

'This novel is a triumph'
Elizabeth Jane Howard

'Every once in a while comes a novel that generates its own success, simply by being loved.'
The Times

'Birdsong for the new millennium'
Tatler

'Powerful, sometimes shocking, boldly conceived, it fixes on war's lingering trauma to show how people adapt - or not - and is irradiated by anger and pity'
The Sunday Times

'[A] tender, elegiac novel. Others have been here before, of course, from Sebastian Faulks to Pat Barker, but Young belongs in their company'
Mail on Sunday
