Reviews

`A superfine, thistledown novel ... written in a prose of such quality that one does not notice the quality - to describe it as craftsmanlike doesn't do it justice. It is a prose beyond accomplishment, yet which refuses to astonish, and which is utterly appropriate.' Ian Sansom, Guardian`Nicholson's opening is pitch perfect ... And the novel ends with a beautifully handled conceit ... It is brave to set yourself up for comparison with an author as great as Hardy but this poetic and unashamedly literary book is good enough not to be embarrassed by the company it seeks to keep.' The Times`Elegant ... While Nicholson's plot adds almost nothing to the historical facts, he lends the story depth by telling it from three different points of view ... A memorable portrait of a failed marriage.' Novel of the Week, Mail on Sunday`A gently elegiac tone permeates the novel, with its ravishing, appropriately Hardyesque sense of the intimate connection between landscape and emotion ... The conclusion is a touching celebration of life over art' Telegraph`Devotees of Thomas Hardy should find much to treasure in Nicholson's third novel ... Nicholson emulates Hardy's elegant style with remarkable acuity ... A wonderfully insightful - and occasionally humorous - portrait of marital unhappiness and the dynamics of desire and longing' Sunday Times`A wonderful novel, moving, gripping and illuminating.' David Lodge`Insightful' Sunday Times Must Reads`A passionate portrayal of love in its many guises' Country Life Magazine
