Reviews

  • "The best novels entrance us by showing what is missed in life as much as by what's discovered; this is one."

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Rich, intricate and alive with emotion ... Glass has used the edges and color blocks of her own life to build an honest portrait of sister-love and sister-hate"

    New York Times Book Review
  • "Louisa and Clem, the sisters at the very centre of this wonderfully vivid, truthful novel, are (as Louisa puts it) "not exactly soul mates. Historically we're kind of like England and France"... [a] quarter century of their lives unfolds, switching between their two voices, kept beautifully distinct by Glass."

    The Times
  • "The beauty of this story lies in its rich detail and the descriptions of the emotions and events that have shaped the sisters' complex relationship. A riveting and intricate read."

    Candis
  • "An engaging and intelligent page-turner"
