Reviews

A nostalgic treat...involving and hopeful * Mail on Sunday *
Excellent... a period tale of sentimental education, it's deliciously readable, with a clever epilogue zooming into the present day for a last gasp surprise * Daily Mail *
No one can dig down into the shrouded recesses of the human heart quite as forensically as Vickers * Sunday Times *
Vickers writes of relationships with undaunted clarity -- Adam Phillips
Quirky and charming * Love It! *
This beautifully crafted novel is a tribute to the power of books * S Magazine, Sunday Express *
The Librarian will wring the heart of anyone who fell in love with books as a child. It is a hymn to the power of children's literature...delightful * The Times *
Vickers lays bare the inner workings of one family, possibly every family, with an often disconcerting clarity * The Times on 'Cousins' *
Vickers' real skill as a story teller is in allowing each distinct voice to contribute to a complete, or as complete as can be, picture of one family... the pace gathers, making for a deeply poignant climax * Financial Times on 'Cousins' *
