Reviews

"A beautiful read, on every level" * Independent on Sunday * "Like the great 19th-century novelists of provincial life, Mary Lawson is fluent in the desperate intensity of the small, individual dramas of respectable people - and she paints an eloquent picture" * Sunday Telegraph * "Evokes beautifully the big joys and sorrows of most people, no matter how small their town" * The Times * "Discreetly powerful" * Daily Telegraph * "This is a fine book - an enthralling read, both straightforward and wonderfully intricate" * Guardian *
