This book has been awarded five stars as it was recognised by the The Whitbread Award, and the Costa Award.
"This novel is a powerful return, after a 10-year gap, for Whitbread-winning Hendry . . . With a surprising denouement, this is an intriguing, atmospheric and memorable tale" -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
"A dark and memorable novel . . . This wise and unsettling tale will captivate discerning readers of any age. The book builds to a dark, destructive ending, but what you remember are the memorable, finely drawn and vivid characters - and the fractured time in which they are growing up" * Telegraph *
"This thoughtful, rather lyrical story resonates with topical and timeless references" * Independent on Sunday *
"The pacing is perfect, with highly dramatic moments broken up by some gorgeous prose . . . One of the most dramatic and shocking endings I've ever read in a novel . . . definitely my favourite read of 2012 so far" * Writing From The Tub *
"An intense, eerie tale" -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
