Intense, atmospheric and beautifully written * Joanna Briscoe, author of Sleep with Me *
Rusbridge's sympathetic and respectful handling of a sensitive issue conveys an emotional impact that resonates long after the closing pages * Times Literary Supplement *
Beautifully describes the landscape of the Sussex coast, echoing with battles, buried bodies and Nora the protagonist's running shoes as she finds her own way of working through the knots of her life and those close to her -- Readers' Books of the Year * Guardian *
An emotional tale of family, forgotten history and loyalty * Psychologies *
What a good novelist Jane Rusbridge is! I love the way she combines dexterous storytelling with deliciously descriptive, poetic prose. The people, the landscape they inhabit, even the birds in the air, are all vividly rendered in this mesmerising and multilayered story * Marika Cobbold, author of Guppies for Tea *
