    Review quote
    'Skilfully evokes the era and slow-moving childhood summers ... A study of memory and guilt with several twists' Guardian. 'This is a haunting novel about loss and reconciliation, driven by a simple but clever plot.' The Sunday Times. 'This book has a clever mystery plot - but its excellence is in the characters, all credible and memorable...' Literary Review.
