• Her strongest yet... a powerful, beautiful novel that shows us our land as it really is: a place of shelter and cruelty, innocence and experience

    The Times
  • Superb...deservedly longlisted for this year's Women's Prize for Fiction

    Daily Mail
  • A gorgeously written celebration of the natural world as well as a moving portrait of a family struggling against time. This book is ultimately about redemption-about the unexpected importance of neighbors, lovers, and friends, and the ways in which we can re-envision our lives for the better, even after the unimaginable has occurred

    Lucy Tan
  • An atmospheric thriller that's both heartbreaking and heartwarming

  • So sharply, so utterly brilliant that I found myself holding my breath while reading it, dazzled by Fuller's mastery and precision. Not since Flaubert's A Simple Heart have I encountered a narrative that shows, with such clear and patient fury, how breathtaking vulnerability can come from poverty, pride, and helpless family love

    Lauren Groff, author of 'Fates and Furies'
  • With sensitivity and intelligence, Fuller unpicks the relentless complexity of the modern world

    The Guardian
  • Fuller is excellent at description, and capturing the twins' awkward interactions with the world. The fate of the illiterate and weak-hearted Jeanie once she loses everything that is safe is particularly unsettling

    Sunday Times
  • Unsettled Ground is another sly psychological treat from Claire Fuller, who just keeps on getting better with each book

    Laline Paull
  • Tender, unusual... these memorable characters will work their way into your head and your heart

    Good Housekeeping
  • Fuller's prose is darkly elegant, her eye for character astute and humane, and her sense of place vividly atmospheric -- here is a writer of great skill, sensitivity and subtlety

    Lucy Atkins, author of Magpie Lane
