Product description

Review

"Powerful… Poignant, bleak and haunting, this is a small masterpiece" (Sunday Mirror)

"Compulsively readable" (Irish Examiner)

"Hill deploys her not inconsiderable power to weave a haunting story" (Daily Mail)

"Beautifully, even lovingly, told" (Scotsman)

"There is something Hardyesque in the tragic momentum of this story" (Guardian)

"Gripping all the way to its unexpected end" (Simon Baker Spectator)

"A perfectly judged story of people living hard, narrow lives" (Observer)

"Hill's beautiful, soulful descriptions of pit village life make this every bit as gripping as her longer spine-chilling stories" (Sunday Mirror)

"In this taught, tense story, written with that unsparing economy which is such a feature of Hill's recent fiction, everyone longs to escape... Ted is thoughtful, compassionate, loving and misguidedly chivalrous... The sparseness of Hill's style provides the perfect medium for exploring his predicament" (East Anglian Daily Times)

"Hill's taut prose exudes a constant darkness... you are left unsettled and haunted by the seeming inevitability of their troubled lives" (Stylist)
