• Roberts writes fantastically well about motherhood and the magical, other-worldly atmosphere of Anglesey

    The Times
  • More than just a piece of mummy lit, it's particularly good on the multiple tiny stories of hurt and resentments that can make up a family history.

  • There's little more engrossing than a top-notch psychological thriller. Bethan Roberts's latest novel doesn't disappoint – it's satisfyingly creepy and stimulates that delicious paradox: goose-pimples in summer.

    The Independent
  • A sharp examination of what it means to be a mother...What makes Mother Island stand out from the crowd, though, is the compassion the author shows for her central characters...A thoroughly cracking read

    Big Issue
  • Cleverly constructed… Skilful unravelling of events… Uncomfortable and gripping in equal measures
