Review

This is the work of somebody profoundly connected to the countryside. The Mysteries of Glass casts its own spell, which is the essential requirement of a novel (Daily Telegraph)

Gee's gentle and restrained story celebrates the sanctity of the ordinary and the beauty of holiness. In a cynical age, such innocence is startling. (The Independent)

This is the work of somebody profoundly connected to the countryside. The Mysteries of Glass casts its own spell, which is the essential requirement of a novel. (Times Literary Supplement)

Written with the delicate fluency of a storyteller utterly at ease with her craft (Times Literary Supplement)

'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)

This is a novel that takes place on the borders of things - between genre and literary, erotic restraint and progressive desire, between Victorian faith and twenty-first century rationalism (Times Literary Supplement)

What could have been just another historical romance becomes a powerful meditation on faith, love and happiness thanks to the intensity of Gee's faultless prose. (City Life, Manchester)

This exquisitely written novel transports you to the simple beauty, poignancy and hypocrisy of the Victorian era in a way that makes you feel you've been there. I cannot recommend it highly enough (Katie Fforde)

'Profound and lyrical, it's full of light and darkness and the most marvellous description' Shena Mackay (Observer)

Profound and lyrical, it's full of light and darkness and the most marvellous description (Shena Mackay, Observer)

Written with the delicate fluency of a storyteller utterly at ease with her craft...[a novel] alive with the cadences of the natural world, the gentle rhythms of a world still unspoiled by the comings of industry (Time Literary Supplement)

This exquisitely written novel transports you to the simple beauty, poignancy and hypocrisy of the Victorian era in a way that makes you feel you've been there. I cannot recommend it highly enough. (Katie Fforde)

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)

The lovely and sometimes menacing countryside is as much a character in the novel as its doomed participants (The Sunday Times)

Unashamedly romantic and sensual, but also so sparely written... the economy of her writing is often breathtaking. THE MYSTERIES OF GLASS is a beautiful book (Glasgow Herald)
