Product description

Review

Lucy Cruickshanks' writing is powerful, pacy, vivid and involving (Isabel Wolff, author of A Vintage Affair)

Burma springs to life through Cruickshanks' beautiful prose (Dinah Jefferies, author of The Tea Planter's Wife)

Gripping and thought-provoking (Candis, Book of the Month)

A gutsy, atmospheric thriller (Woman & Home)

An intelligent and incredibly impactful read that stays with the reader long after turning the final page (Novelicious)

An enjoyable and well-written novel (South China Morning Post)

Set in a very difficult period of Burma's history, this novel brings the rawness and uncertainty of the times to life in the later 20th Century. There are very carefully observed mannerisms amongst the local people, and the oppressive times in which the people of Burma were living are acutely portrayed. It cleverly sets the historical for anyone who is going to visit in the 21st Century who wants to gain a sense of the country of Myanmar today (Trip Fiction)

A beautifully atmospheric novel (Woman's World)

For someone who knew relatively nothing of the situation in Burma, this book is a real eye opener!
Imagine living under such fear and not only from the obvious enemy but from your neighbour or man on the street who could just as easily betray you.
Lucy has done a great deal of timeless and detailed research... and made it one heck on an insight into a better understanding of Burmese history

(BookTrail)

Cruickshanks is skilled in her ability to marry her fiction with well-researched historical events. Indeed, having had a prior interest in Myanmar and its recent history, Cruickshanks effectively depicted a visceral world of bloodshed, without compromising on historical integrity (The Student Newspaper)

Book Description

From the heart of Burma's exotic Rubyland comes an emotional thriller, as three lives are thrown together by the desperate choices they make to survive in a country gripped by civil war
