• "The author's witty manipulation of her characters recalls the other Trollope, although there is nothing Victorian about her style... perfectly pitched dialogue"

    The Times
  • "One of the finest chroniclers of the way we live now"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Trollope has perfectly caught the angst of the empty nest... the ebb and flow of relationships is brilliantly handled"

    The Observer
  • "The queen of the domestic dilemma... observant and empathetic"

    The Sunday Times
  • "Trollope has always written well and convincingly about property. It's her refusal to divorce her characters' inner lives from the accumulated stuff of their outer ones that makes the best of it so compelling"
