What an amazing book! Cleverly linking the characters of several generations this is a portrayal of every kind of sin. It doesn’t assess or deem to categorise the immensity of the sin, it merely shows us and leaves the ‘perception’ of their severity to the reader. It is characterisation at its most perfect and demonstrates the author’s understanding of humanity. Exceptional! It is one of those books you cannot stop thinking about even when put down and making the dinner, your thoughts are perusing the complexities of the story. If this is the author’s first book it promises of more to come. Juliet Cromwell is an exceptional writer. Pat McDonald British Crime Author

This, wow!
It is not an easy read, it is web of stories intricately tied together so perfectly and as such it is a read you have to concentrate completely on but it is so worth every second of complete concentration. Seeing how the stories of individual characters pan out and combine was a pleasure, discovering the sins that were twisted in the web was heart breaking in places. So many small actions that impacted so dramatically on the lives of those involved. Perfection!

This story of people who come together through troubles and loves is moving. The threads join together and although there is sadness there is also a real reaching into the hearts and emotions of each. Difficult topics are repeatedly raised in a deeply understanding way and even the horrors are handled with care. A fantastic read with excellent writing style.

Juliet Cromwell`s debut novel had me gripped from the beginning! Her story features several characters who are intertwined with each other but not quite sure until we get to the end,then it all clicks in place. As a native of Essex it was wonderful to be able to relate to local places, including Suffolk! The story unravels slowly, each character lovingly introduced to us, even Lydia, had her appeal. If you enjoy books with depth, haunting love, quiet passion,great escapism from the mundane and a mother's love and grief that knows no limits.....this is for you! Enjoy the book! I look forward to her next one!

I was thoroughly taken with this book, which seemed to be more concerned with minute dissection of the intricacies of human frailties, guilts, desires and worries than with traditional formulaic plotting, and made a very thought-provoking change. The only disappointment was the dramatic horror at the end, which seemed to belong to a different genre.

A brilliant story about a woman's overwhelming grief for her abducted daughter. Both moving and hard hitting i thought this was a great book and would thoroughly recommend it.

A Perception of Sin spans 3 generations, the Second World War and 9/11· It follows the tumultuous events of 2 families linked by one deed; the repercussions of which has a long-lasting effect which takes us to a final conclusion.
Cromwell pours much of what makes us human into this novel and, at times, touches a very raw nerve. We think we know the characters well until they shock and surprise us with their actions.
A real page turner for those interested in the (sometimes hidden) History of Britain, and of the dynamics of families.

A moving literary piece, Juliette Cromwell’s A Perception of Sin takes the reader on a roller-coaster emotional ride.
A lovely and innocent young woman, who carries a secret that even she is unaware of, is brutally murdered and becomes the source of an outpouring of love and pain for so many of the lives she’s touched. The ordeal of two families is inextricably woven together when the girl’s DNA sample reveals an unbelievable detail from twenty-four years prior. From there, we begin a journey dating back from the D-day invasion of Normandy and the Nazi war camps to modern-day England.

Our characters are richly developed: a homely woman whose best companion is an equally homely dog; grandparents who have known lost love, longing, and the atrocities of war; a woman who selfishly only sees her own needs at the peril of others and ultimately herself; and a young, lost college student who experiences his own tragedy.

Cromwell carries us deep into the cesspool of sin and the effects and unexpected consequences of our characters’ weaknesses. She manages to clearly portray how basic human need and desire, driving us blindly, is often the undoing of otherwise well-meaning humans. Clamoring for what is not ours to the point that our behavior is beyond objectionable is so clearly defined in this masterfully written novel, that it causes us to pause for introspection and personal inventory.

A story that stays with you for days after completion, this wonderfully crafted work digs deeply into human emotion. Is it perfect? No, it isn’t, but it is still a wonderful read despite a few flaws. Mostly, and despite usually great prose, there were spots in this novel that were marred with poor editing and proofreading.
