'All women with lingering illusions about the way men think should read this fast-moving, sharply focused, fantasy-shattering little thunderclap of a book.' -- Helen Garner 'I can't fault this book - the characters are solid and believable, the storyline unpredictable and the rural Australian imagery vivid. The science of love and lust in its many forms is played out convincingly through Colin and Tilda and is not told in an overly soppy or trite way - it's tangible and that's what works so well.' Australian Bookseller & Publisher 'Sherborne excels at taking subject matter that has been written about a million times before and making the reader feel as though they are experiencing it for the first time...This is a frank, fun and fearless romantic tale that readers are also bound to fall in love with.' **** Good Reading 'Intelligent and unusual...a perceptive study of self-absorption, of cruelty that chooses not to face itself, the discerning psychological portrait of a numbed heart and conscience.'
