Dan is a subtle study; his vulnerability, his innocence, his resourceful intelligence and his dawning moral sense are wonderfully convincing (Charlotte Moore DAILY TELEGRAPH)

This easy-to-read tale is moving and poignant (STAR MAGAZINE)

Billington explores the difficulties of growing up and growing older with exquisite attention to detail (SHE)

Sacrifice... combined with the suggestion that through suffering Eve, Max and Martha are brought to a state of greater love, understanding and honesty, is really the moral heart of the novel (Diana Hendry THE SPECTATOR)

a well-wrought, honest book that is generous with its insights and tender in all the right places. (Jane Housham DAILY EXPRESS)

Billington keeps the tension rising, and it all feels horribly believable (Lucy Atkins SUNDAY TIMES)

Tautly written and well paced, this is a very readable novel about a difficult and all too common situation (GOOD BOOK GUIDE)
