Reviews

"The evocation of place is wonderful; the writing fresh, the storytelling assured... Dea Brovig vividly conjures up this Norwegian community and its terrible secrets and repressions. The story builds up with quiet power... with every word necessary." -- Jill Dawson, author of * The Great Lover and Lucky Bunny *
"Brovig's debut novel, with its eerie atmosphere... will leave an indelible mark on anyone who reads it." * The Lady *
"A dark, evocative novel that hinges on the cost and consequences of silence. The characters - their passions and their predicaments - stayed with me long after I'd put the book down." -- Sarah Butler, author of * Ten Things I've Learnt About Love *
"A finely-written debut, as eloquent about mothers and daughters as it is about men and women, with an immediacy to the writing that makes both time - then and now - and place - a small Norwegian town - fully realised and tangibly present." -- Stella Duffy
"[An] atmospheric story ... An accomplished and moving debut that lingers long in the mind." * The Good Book Guide *
