Reviews

  • Luminous, masterful ... glides seamlessly through the 20th century immersing the reader. Tremendously well-written.

    TELEGRAPH
  • A gripping historical adventure that feels sharp, fresh and modern

    STYLIST MAGAZINE
  • This is truly exceptional storytelling, combining a sweeping arc of history with writing that, at sentence level, is near-flawless

    BOOKSELLER, A Fiction Pick of the Year
  • Effortlessly woven... deserves to be savoured slowly

    EVENING STANDARD
  • Shipstead turns phrases and observes people beautifully. Full of adventure, passion and tragedy... a glorious tribute to women who push the boundaries of their one, brief life, breaking the bonds of their place in history and their female bodies, to soar higher and faster than others; and the price they pay to live so fast
