Reviews

  • Beautifully written, carefully balanced, Mary Lawson constructs a history of sacrifice, emotional isolation and family love without sounding a false note

    Daily Mail
  • Full of blossoming insights and emotional acuity...a compelling and serious page-turner

    Observer
  • Lawson's evocative storytelling...knows just how to draw the reader on...this is a novel of disappointed hopes and self-delusion, but it has a feel-good finish. Move over Lake Wobegon

    Spectator
  • A novel of a darkly unpredictable and compelling kind. It is a wise book

    Financial Times
