"Whether you're off on a romantic couple's holiday or a relaxing day with your partner in the park - this will have you more loved up than ever. Set in a bar on an idyllic island off the coast of Italy - this tale comes with friendships, betrayals, relationships and affairs" * The Sun - Summer Reads *
"Readers, prepare to be captivated. This is an evocatively written, enchanting tale filled with richly depicted characters. The House at the End of Night has been compared to Joanne Harris's Chocolat and Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres and Banner's tale can confidently take its place on the bookshelves alongside those novels as it, too, transports us to a magical, enthralling world" * Irish Independent *
"Catherine Banner's debut novel is a spellbinding summer saga... expect ancient legends, superstitions, friendships, feuds and love affairs in this gorgeously evocative Mediterranean tale that's reminiscent of Louis de Bernier's Captain Corelli's Mandolin" * Culturefly *
"A luminous homage to the Italian tradition of storytelling ... a lusty page-turner that weaves romance, rivalry and the intricacies of family expectations into one glorious tale. There are echoes of Italo Calvino in Banner's writing-echoes of admiration and love. Reading The House at the Edge of Night is like falling into a fantastical world where time stands still, yet change happens at an unimaginable pace." * Minneapolis Star Tribune *
