Product description

Review

The Riordans will stay in your mind long after you finish this book. They're funny, infuriating and impossible not to love. They feel like family - Irish Times

My favourite kind of novel: big-hearted, psychologically complex and utterly gripping

Unputdownable

Instantly appealing...magical - Daily Telegraph

Masterful...holds you on an exquisite knife-edge - Marie Claire

An author at the top of her game - Sunday Express

O'Farrell's language is lissom, airborne, mostly seamless, her characters flawed, contradictory, aggravating and instantly knowable. This is a deceptively easy, effortlessly true-feeling novel; a total delight - Metro

A quite wonderful novel...at once enthralling, page turning and atmospheric - Irish Examiner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
