Product description

Review

Mytting's book is as much a romantic historical thriller as it is a book of promise, a page-turner as it is a reflective journey into selfhood, history, life's meaning and individual moral responsibility (Mika Provata-Carlone Bookanista)

Mytting follows up Norwegian Wood with a mystery that fits together like a piece of fine marquetry (Christian House Observer 2017-08-20)

The Sixteen Trees of the Somme is so cleverly plotted, and it builds up such effortless dramatic momentum as it zeroes in on its conclusion (Roger Cox Scotsman 2017-08-18)

The tug of this book on the heart and mind is irresistible . . . And you will, I think, struggle to find a modern novel in which the emotional, imaginative lure of trees and wood is as powerful. (Michael Duggan Catholic Herald Books of the Year.)

Though the twists of discovery drive the plot, it is the intimacy with the natural world - as we might expect from the author of the phenomenally successful Norwegian Wood - that most compels us: potato-flowers, islets, storm petrels, walnut trees and walnut wood. (Paul Binding Times Literary Supplement 2018-01-26)
