'Her work is so good it is unforgettable... Gee's books may be unashamedly romantic and sensual, but they are also so sparely written that the economy of her writing is often breathtaking... a beautiful, redemptive book' Jackie McGlone, Glasgow Herald (Jackie McGlone, Glasgow Herald)

Have read it twice and could not put it down either time! A very perceptive and historically well observed book.
