Heartwarming and observant
Poised and perceptive
Strenuously charming...surprisingly tender
Full of emotion and tense moments. You will be gripped from the first page.
Deeply accomplished, with brilliantly observed, entertaining characters and an atmospheric setting
An undercurrent of black comedy accompanies the ripples that ensue - but with a pathos that makes this deftly plotted story as moving as it is compelling.
One of the more authentic debuts I've read in recent years... A fine novel.
charming...thoughtfully done...highly enjoyable.
