Reviews

  • This posthumous collection from the much-loved author, focusing on motherhood, war and women under threat, is an act of tender commemoration… there are new departures on the themes that preoccupied Dunmore: childhood, motherhood, war, friendship, forgotten lives.

    Guardian – Book of the Week
  • Wisdom and wit shine out from Helen Dunmore’s last stories…The simplicity of the writing is deceptive; Dunmore manages to say a lot about families, about the mystery of creativity, and the shock of seeing someone you thought you knew in a new light.

    The Times
  • Dunmore’s gift for period detail combines with the respect she has for her characters’ inner lives to produce an effect that is oddly moving.

    Sunday Times
  • Dunmore’s love of history glints and gleams in this elegant, posthumous collection

    The Daily Mail
  • Whether musing on a portrait of John Donne or a friendship between two widows, the late, much missed Dunmore always has something worth saying
