A fascinating study ... compelling ... an appealing and original account of one of the greatest human virtues, full of powerful stories. It leaves you hopeful. * Sunday Times *
A series of beautifully written vignettes that function as a meditation on bravery's lovely shimmer * Guardian *
Morland approaches her subject with energy, tenacious curiosity and, however much she may protest that she is lily-livered, courage ... she proves the liveliest company: sane, merry and undeceived ... a bracing, moving and uncommon book. * Observer *
Written with Morland's characteristic warmth and humour, this is a fascinating, insightful read that will both galvanise and inspire. A book that should be on all our bedside tables -- Kate Humble
A wonderfully wide-ranging study of the principle of inconstancy ... as a writer she has prepared the ground for this study in her previous two astute and substantial books ... Morland is a measured, ever-curious and approachable guide through these stories, and she never takes the easy way out of them by denying their complexity, or attempting too much in the way of universally applicable self-help. -- Tim Adams * Observer *
