Sammy Sutton Author
Fabulously WrittenReviewed in the United States on 21 April 2012
A fabulously written adult story that reminded me of what it's like to be a child. Thea Atkinson is one of the most versitile authors I have had the pleasure of reading. Her work has soul and THROWING CLAY SHADOWS stays true to her style. The images are so vivid it becomes a stage production in the room. The death of her mother brings incredible grief to Maggie. Her fears become personal monsters of childlike proportions. She feels responsible for her mother's death and worries she will kill her father. The story takes place in a perfect setting on the Isle of Eigg in 1807. The author shares an incredibly deep and accurate portrayal of a traumatized child.

Fun read done in an unusual, pleasing styleReviewed in the United States on 1 March 2019
Unusual story of growing up. Maturing into abilities few possess young Maggie helps the adults around her mature as well. Well written and manages to jump to different times and perspectives without being confusing.
Loved it!Reviewed in the United States on 10 January 2013
I took a chance on this, I had never read anything else my Thea Atkinson at this point so I bought it based solely on other reviews. I was not disappointed, her writing is incredible and I truly felt I was a part of this little girls world. Very beautiful, yet sometimes dark book.
