By far the most impressive novel I read this year... I'd give it to anyone who wants, as I do, to have their head and heart churned by what they read -- Julie Myerson * Observer *
A spellbinding tale of betrayal and illicit desire... The human experience of love, desire, guilt and loneliness are at the heart of the novel... A compelling and quietly devastating story about a woman destroyed by her faith * Independent on Sunday *

A work of great originality, devastating in its impact... As powerful as it is subtle, a novel of gripping emotional and psychological intensity * Daily Mail *
