  • Margaret Forster has always had the enviable gift of making her characters spring to life, and both Isa and May do just that

    Allan Massie, The Scotsman
  • A deliciously observed, dilemma-and-drama-packed read

    Helen Brown, Daily Mail
  • A compelling story, sometimes funny, sometimes painfully sad... All family life is here, messy, insistent and, as the author convincingly shows, as essential as breathing

    Penny Perrick, Sunday Times
  • A sensitive and intelligent novel with passages of beautifully modulated pathos, while being in part, hugely funny

    Matthew Dennison, The Times
  • [Forster] has written so brilliantly about female relationships...she can encapsulate a whole scene in a single sentence... [A] whole rich, fascinating novel

    Kate Saunders, Literary Review
