'Dimmick will keep readers intrigued... Natalie's coming to terms with her life, and her jolting ride toward redemption turn out to be absorbing' Publishers Weekly 'Far more evocative and beautifully written than [The Horse Whisperer], and stays with the reader long after the final page is turned... a completely engrossing debut novel' Aberdeen Press & Journal
