Reviews

[Gornell's] admirable single-mindedness and cool nerve are allied to a highly developed prose style which effectively conjures up a mood of darkness, intense cold and moral ambiguity - one in which nature itself feels complicit in the actions of the people. It is genuinely gripping - THE HERALDThe Wrong Child is a startling and uncompromising story of grief and anger, of abandonment and decay. It's intense - darker than dark - but also original and beautiful - HELEN FITZGERALD, author of Viral, Dead Lovely and The Cry[An] uncompromising story of grief, anger, abandonment and decay - SCOTS MAGAZINEStunning. Macabre, unsettling and beautifully poetic - BRIAN CONAGHAN, Costa Award winning author of THE BOMBS THAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER
