Review:

A good read. * WESTERN DAILY PRESS, 14 Jan * Gritty... Neale makes Cookson's earthiest stories look a little tame. * PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH, 28 Jan * A gritty tale * BELLA * Kitty Neale has proved herself to be a storyteller of rare power who is unafraid to uncover the dark secrets of family homes... Neale goes to the heart of a troubled family with a deft touch and a powerful insight. * WIGAN EVENING POST, 14 Jan *
