Reviews

  • Intriguing and poignantly written

    PA Life
  • A book with such beautiful writing that sometimes I have to stop and taste a sentence a second time

    Grazia
  • A wonderful metaphor for the child's sense of things that are never mentioned, and Bender writes with wit, warmth and insight

    The Times
  • Quirky, engaging tale of a family endowed with unlikely gifts, the ties that bind people barely conceal the chasms that divide them

    Guardian
  • The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake has at its heart an intriguing and poignant comment on the perils of childhood ... Bender brilliantly dovetails Rose's condition into a parable of the dangers of knowing too much about people, especially your family ... it is fresh and beautifully written

    The Sunday Times
