Review

‘Guaranteed to give the reader a warm glow’ Independent

‘Warm and humane, this novel is beautifully written’ The Times

‘This being Gale there’s a compelling tale to be told … a convincing, moving account of man’s struggle with faith, marriage and morality’ Sunday Times

‘The unfolding nightmare for all the family of the consequences of adopting are exquisitely and painfully documented… The final chapter left me with a lump in my throat’ Salley Vickers, Guardian

‘At his best, Gale is an effortlessly elastic storyteller, a writer with heart, soul, and a dark and naughty wit, one whose company you relish and trust’ Julie Myerson, Observer

Book Description

A warm, humane Cornish novel from the bestselling author of NOTES FROM AN EXHIBITION and A PLACE CALLED WINTER --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
