Reviews

"The work of a novelist in her prime... The narrative is taut and suspenseful, the characterization complex and dynamic." -- Stevie Davies * Guardian *
"Brilliantly drawn... Atmosphere and characters linger long after the novel ends" * Sunday Times *
"Deft, intriguing and gripping. Forster never disappoints." -- Kate Williams * Woman & Home *
"This is Margaret Forster's last novel, sadly, and it's full of reminders of what made her such a shrewd and arresting chronicler of women's lives" -- Hephzibah Anderson * Mail on Sunday *
"An exemplary final work ... wonderfully well-observed" -- D.J. Taylor * The Times *
