  • "The most dazzling depiction of the world of dance since Ballet Shoes'"

    Kate Saunders, The Times
  • "Her prose is airbound at times - an exhilarating celebration of rhythm, sway and leap"

    Daily Mail
  • "Darkens from an absorbing mystery into a touching reckoning... Most striking is the delicacy and power with which Evans depicts emotional disturbance"

    The Guardian
  • "The story is complex, clever, seamlessly achieved, its many currents blending in harmony, sometimes in conflict, to recreate that sense of randomness and accident that resemble the truth of life in the chancy present...The author's passion burns on the page, along with an almost tactile relish of the act of writing itself"

    Tom Adair, Scotsman
  • "A serious work of art with sentences like ribbons of silk winding around a skeleton of haunting imagery... Evans was born to write this novel"
