  • A haunted, haunting, and deeply humane book

    Robert Crawford
  • It's like some beautifully ornate kist or jewel-box that for most of the encounter you admire for its own sake, only to find a key, near the end, that opens onto even more treasure

    Gavin Francis
  • It is another wonderful piece of storytelling from James Robertson, offering a penetrating exploration of the complexities of collective memory and the tenacity of tradition, all played out through a thousand years of life in a single glen. It has all the makings of a timeless classic in its own right.

    Professor Gary West
  • James Robertson is an extremely fine novelist . . . This is a superb book.. . It is not a book anyone will forget quickly.

    Scotland on Sunday
  • One of Robertson's skills as a novelist is to make both events real and imagined feel equally convincing.

  • Subtly explores the relationship between place and identity
