  • The work of a novelist in her prime… The narrative is taut and suspenseful, the characterization complex and dynamic.

    Stevie Davies, Guardian
  • Brilliantly drawn… Atmosphere and characters linger long after the novel ends

    Sunday Times
  • Deft, intriguing and gripping. Forster never disappoints.

    Kate Williams, Woman & Home
  • This is Margaret Forster's last novel, sadly, and it's full of reminders of what made her such a shrewd and arresting chronicler of women’s lives

    Hephzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday
  • An exemplary final work … wonderfully well-observed

    D.J. Taylor, The Times
