Fiorato has written a delightful, if undemanding, adventure story. Our heroine is feisty, the captain is dashing and the plot rollicks along. Great fun.
Wonderful . . . hard to put down. A truly imaginative piece, both touching and delightful.
Richly detailed and evocative . . . an unforgettable historical love story. Beautifully written and worth losing yourself in.
In Marina Fiorato's beautifully imagined novel, these two witty, fierce characters once again get to take centre stage . . . Not only does she fill out the details of the protagonists' lives, transforming them into characters with backgrounds, histories and contexts, but she creates meaningful and inventive narratives that inform the play . . . this book is a real pleasure.
Entertaining and witty
Fiorato creates her own masterpiece
A great read
