MEDIA REVIEWS
"A tale of lost innocence, the power of art and the pain of love" * Sunday Express *
"Bewitching debut novel... It's a vivid, intoxicating blend of fact and fiction, desire and creativity. If you're passionate about art, you'll love it - and if you didn't think you were remotely interested in it, you will be by the end of it" * Pool *
"An altogether painterly book, full of vividly evocative scenes" -- Anthony Gardner * Mail on Sunday *
"A lovely, poignant, evocative novel. Delicious" * Saga Magazine *
"The raw power of colour is emphasised again and again" -- Cath Sell * Nudge *
"Lusciously atmospheric, nuanced and wonderfully readable" -- Jini Ready * Resurgence & Ecologist *
"This is a creative mix of fact, and fiction and readers should find themselves swept up in this intriguing story. Art lovers will adore it and those that know nothing about art will wish they knew more." -- Jennifer McShane * Image *
