Review:

It has me in its grip and I couldn't rest until the final page...It is satisfying and rare to read a book whose characters are dealt the fates we feel they deserve...A beautifully spun tale that absorbs without the need to address 'issues'. * Literary Review * Piquant, witty and entertaining * Tatler * Huth's controlled, elegant style has been compared to Jane Austen, but her talent is entirely original. -- Penny Perrick * The Times * Huth knows how to keep you turning the pages. * Guardian * Huth is a master of this sort of novel, steeped in period atmosphere and gentle irony. * Daily Telegraph * Huth is good on the rhythms of long marriages, like that of the Lawrences, and on the texture of life in rural wartime England. * The Times * A good story, told with wit and a keen observation of detail. * Times Literary Supplement * Angela Huth's riveting novel...is evocative and entertaining. * Mail on Sunday *
