  • Lily, in addition to its pellucid prose, is shamelessly gripping

    Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph
  • Tremain's latest novel more than lives up to its atmospheric, riveting beginning... It's consummate storytelling, and finds room for redemption as well as revenge

    Hephzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday
  • Another memorable and engrossing read from Tremain, which brings Victorian London, and especially courageous Lily, to life on the page

    Joanne Finney, Good Housekeeping
  • A heartbreaking story set in Victorian England from the pitch-perfect pen of Rose Tremain

    Antonia Senior, The Times, *Books of the Year*
  • Tremain's gift is to create characters whose experiences span every walk of life, but who are grounded in their author's understanding of the world

    Harper's Bazaar
  • Enthralling... Tremain evokes Victorian London with visceral intensity in a gripping and deeply humane novel exploring themes of rejection, poverty, guilt and redemption

    Hannah Beckerman, Observer
  • It's more than gratifying to open [Tremain's] new novel, Lily, and immediately see that she is still writing at full throttle... This is the literary equivalent of all your favourite Christmas telly programmes rolled into one... Lily's story is a winter's tale: a cosy pageturner that will whisk you away from the 21st century while engaging and sharpening your mind.

    Melissa Katsoulis, The Times
  • No writer can inhabit the skin of a historical period and bring it so pulsatingly alive as Rose Tremain. No one can break your heart quite like this. In this compassionate, generous, soaringly beautiful book, Tremain is at the top of her game. Read and be transported

    Neel Mukherjee
  • Enthralling... Tremain evokes Victorian London with visceral intensity in a gripping and deeply humane novel exploring themes of rejection, poverty, guilt and redemption

    Hannah Beckerman, Observer
  • A wonderfully evocative story with a heroine to root for

    Sarra Manning, Red
