  • Dazzlingly well-written. The style is exuberant and extremely funny. This is a midsummer's night dream of a book, mythic and unforgettable

    Financial Times
  • What a delicious literary cocktail Sadie Jones's latest novel is: part suspense, part Edwardian romcom, richly evocative of time and place... It's a spiffing tale and, even though it is at bottom a metaphysical love story, it is far more believable than Downton Abbey

    Sebastian Shakespeare, Tatler
  • Highly entertaining… An elegant comedy of manners with the usual undercurrents of jealousy, desire and conflicting loyalties… Jones shows that she can turn her talent for storytelling to a more stylised form with a light and playful touch, and without compromising her sharp insights into the human heart

    Stephanie Merritt, Observer
  • Fans of The Outcast and Small Wars won't be disappointed. Wonderfully spooky and atmospheric

    Viv Groskop, Red
  • With its Mitfordesque dialogue and pacy plot, this is a deliciously fun read

    Beatrice Hodgkin, Easy Living
