I have been absolutely glued to this book! It's superbly written and entrancing in its portrayal of troubled youth. Rarely does prose 'hit the spot' so exactly when describing people's innermost thoughts. I can understand why it might not appeal to all types of reader; some of the scenes could be quite disturbing. It is a book to think about, and it certainly left me breathless in its frank portrayal of how much people's words and actions can affect others' sensitivities.
As a huge fan of Susan Howatch's 'Starbridge' series as well as authors such as Elizabeth Pewsey, I found the background both familiar and interesting. Catherine Fox knows her subject inside out - and needs to, for this book to be so easily authoritative.
Fox is a new author for me, and I am delighted to have discovered her. Would I read this book again? Most definitely!
