Reviews

  • "Prepare to be charmed, amused and moved . . . A complete delight"

    January Book Club Pick, Mail on Sunday
  • "Dazzling...a miniature masterpiece of serio-comic writing...A dark comedy, moving between drollery, pathos, farce and harrowing moments of tragic insight"

    Guardian
  • "I loved this book - Lissa Evans is a wonderful writer; Vee and Noel are utter originals, and their journey made me laugh and cry"

    JoJo Moyes
  • "Wonderfully vivid and eccentric...there's a good dash of sharp comedy to offset the heart-warming stuff"

    Kate Saunders, The Times
  • "A fabulous novel about the relationship between ten-year-old Noel and his unscrupulous but endearing foster mother, Vee Sedge"

    January Book Club Pick, Woman & Home
