  • A shining example of historical literary fiction… nothing less than literary pyrotechnics. Beautiful Lies is a dazzlingly elegant novel steeped in the rich detail of the period

    Lucy Scholes, Independent
  • Sentences that are so lush, so beautifully finished, that one almost wants to stroke her prose

    Judith Flanders, Guardian
  • A wonderfully observed novel which explores both the role of women and the tabloid press in Victoria's jubilee year. Completely gripping

    Rosie Boycott
  • The charm of Beautiful Lies is that Ms Clark breaks the usual Victorian moral code, exploring both the colourful world outside the drawing room and the depths of her characters’ minds. A stirring and seductive novel

    The Economist
  • A hugely entertaining and generous piece of story-telling

    James Walton, Daily Mail
