  • Remarkable ... will stay with you long after you read the last page.

    Claire Messud
  • Deeply moving ... I was engrossed by the elegant plotting and intelligent writing ... I was, simply, moved to tears

    Patrick Ness, Guardian
  • Rich, evocative prose reminiscent of Marilynne Robinson ... loaded with emotional resonance.

  • Beautiful ... subtle, sharp and truthful

    The Times
  • An outstanding novel ... the emotional power is relentless. A sense of longing courses through the narrative, yet the irony of the title is well served; this is an intelligent, reserved novel, and is all the more moving for the restrained dignity that conveys not only the regrets but also the anger... an allusive, intelligent and solemn work

    Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
