The novel has a gently sweet flavour, it continues to beguile because of Pilcher's warmth, sincerity and easy, undemanding prose
Compelling pages packed with convincing characters, vivid settings and weepy bits
Especially good on atmosphere and a lonely teenager's bewilderment, Pilcher's storytelling skills are serene and beguiling
Captivating . . . The best sort of book to come home to . . . Readers will undoubtedly hope Pilcher comes home to the typewriter again soon.
A great featherbed of a novel, all the right ingredients
Classy, lavish entertainment . . . literate pleasure
Much-needed balm to soothe the troubled mind'
A well-upholstered good read
