"A story told with clear-eyed compassion and quiet intelligence
about what it is to grow up and grow away, about the difference
between 'here' and 'home'. Solace lives up to its title:
this is a lovely debut."--Anne Enright, Man Booker Prize-winning
author of The Gathering
"Intensely controlled, this fine first novel brought to my mind the performance of a talented young dancer whose steps and movements are flawless."--Ursula Le Guin, The Guardian
"Solace is an elegant, consuming and richly inspired novel. Like all good stories, it's a love story. It just so happens that it's also lovingly told. A superb debut. This one will last."--Colum McCann, National Book Award-winning author of Let the Great World Spin
"Solace is a novel of quiet power, filled with moments of carefully-told truth. Belinda McKeon demonstrates a real wisdom in this book which will appeal to readers both young and old, and a command of style and structure which will make this a much-loved and a treasured book by readers everywhere."--Colm To b n, author of Brooklyn and The Empty Family
