Product description

Review

"An elegant, subtle, haunting novel that stayed with me long after I finished it. Sadie Jones has a long literary future ahead of her" (Tracy Chevalier)

"The prose is elegant and spare, but the story it reveals is raw and explosive... Devastatingly good'" (Eithne Farry Daily Mail)

"Jones's story is imbued with brooding atmosphere and drama. Understated and elegantly narrated with attention to period detail, this is a gripping love story with a twist. If you liked Atonement by Ian McEwan, you'll love this" (Harper's Bazaar)

"Eminently readable first novel....reads like a thriller, the tension and menace build expertly...a powerful, promising first novel" (Financial Times)

"She writes with simmering intensity... particularly strong on atmosphere... Jones uses small, startling phrases to convey depths of passion and information and she can make seemingly innocuous passages radiate beauty" (Sunday Telegraph)

"A dark but beautifully written, heart-wringing suspense tale... The claustrophobic, menacing atmosphere of Sadie Jones's page-turning debut never lets up, and that's admirable enough, but it's more than narrative tension that makes the novel special. Her writing is deeply affecting... the quality of the writing and the desire to see justice done keep one reading avidly" (Independent on Sunday)

"Controlled, insightful first novel... Comparisons with Ian McEwan are inevitable, but Jones's assured, compassionate writing is satisfyingly original" (Guardian)

"This hotly-tipped debut certainly delivers. The prose is clean and clear; so disciplined and spare" (Independent)

"Sadie Jones proves she's no novice when it comes to poignant prose with this, her debut novel... The sense of mounting suspense coupled with the beautifully drawn characterisation makes this a novel that's guaranteed to get right under your skin" (Glamour)

Book Description

The bestselling novel behind the major new BBC drama starring George Mackay (Pride), Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Greg Wise (Cranford) and Hattie Morahan (Sense and Sensibility)
