The author ... writes with warmth and insight about the tricky questions facing individuals in a post-war, godless universe ... Runcie is expert at exploring the fallout of betrayal, infidelity and the loss of a child ... Runcie works his magic using simple sentences, archetypal characters and a sense of suspense that creates an atmosphere of delicious anticipation * Independent *
