An underrated masterpiece,
This review is from: The Girl in a Swing (Charnwood large type) (Hardcover)
This book has slipped far, far into obscurity. I read it many years ago and was so impressed that I have endeavoured to read it every year since. It sounds like an odd thing to do but the spell that the novel weaves for itself is so beautifully complex and sinister that - just give it a chance - you'll find it hard to break out of. The Prologue, just a page and a half about loss and grief, is a gripper. The ending is devastating. A little belter.
