    Review quote
    "An intense and arresting love story" -- Natasha Harding The Sun "An outstanding, compelling drama from Downham" -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller "It's one of the most powerful books we've read in an age. Even after finishing, it lingered with us for days ... Jenny Downham's novel blows other books out of the water" Sugar "I loved it ... Beautifully written with a painful but penetrating awareness" -- Jill Murphy Bookbag "A tale of love across the social divide in coastal Norfolk, with the edge of a crime novel ... Split loyalties and the chasm between the young couple's life experiences make their enduring relationship a triumph. Their credible and tender sexual encounter is the calm before the storm, as for Romeo and Juliet" Observer
