'Harding's exquisite novel is a masterpiece of mood and location ... a profound meditation on survival, atonement and faith' Daily Telegraph 'Her descriptions of scenery are outstanding ... Thomas Cave's ordeal should hold readers fast in an icy grip' Independent 'I read it almost at one sitting and thought it was an astonishing and risk-taking piece of imaginative writing. Her language is superb - evocative and poetic. She conjures up a mysterious and haunting world that lingers in the imagination' Charles Palliser 'Congratulations on a really brilliant book - a modern classic, a unique story wonderfully told. Thomas Cave will live on' Brian Patten
