Reviews

Though the twists of discovery drive the plot, it is the intimacy with the natural world - as we might expect from the author of the phenomenally successful Norwegian Wood - that most compels us: potato-flowers, islets, storm petrels, walnut trees and walnut wood. -- Paul Binding * Times Literary Supplement * The tug of this book on the heart and mind is irresistible . . . And you will, I think, struggle to find a modern novel in which the emotional, imaginative lure of trees and wood is as powerful. -- Michael Duggan * Catholic Herald Books of the Year. * The Sixteen Trees of the Somme is so cleverly plotted, and it builds up such effortless dramatic momentum as it zeroes in on its conclusion -- Roger Cox * Scotsman * Mytting follows up Norwegian Wood with a mystery that fits together like a piece of fine marquetry -- Christian House * Observer * Mytting's book is as much a romantic historical thriller as it is a book of promise, a page-turner as it is a reflective journey into selfhood, history, life's meaning and individual moral responsibility -- Mika Provata-Carlone * Bookanista *
