Review Text

A gorgeous, rapturous novel, intensely atmospheric...a beautiful and heart-wrenching story of a daughter’s love for her mother. Like all Rowan’s novels, it’s life-affirming and shows the best of what humans can be; I felt that the world was a better place when I put it down. As a novel about impossible things, it made me think that anything was possible.
