  • A fine and profoundly intelligent novel, written by an author who balances big ideas with human emotion. Wistful, yearning and wise.

    Elizabeth Day

  • What we're reading on holiday.

    The Times
  • Sebastian Faulks' latest novel is beautifully written, shot through with a sense of the frailty of love that is at times reminiscent of William Faulkner's The Wild Palms... This is a superb novel

  • A 5* masterpiece that I devoured in a day

    New Books Magazine
  • A yearning, wistful, lovelorn novel, intent on exploring the price of being human.

    Sunday Times
  • Faulks on his best form.

  • Fascinating . . . impeccably researched . . . At the heart of this rich, dark story, however, is not politics but psychology . . . Faulks's committed fans will be left looking forward to the next instalment of this thought-provoking trilogy.

    The Times
  • A magnificent, moving novel.

  • A tale of love - lost and found - and the strength of the human spirit.
