I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, as it's by a new author and published by a small independent press, but I think this thoroughly proves that small publishers are as good at, if not better than, the big publishing houses when it comes to spotting talent. This was a tightly written and engaging read that carefully balanced description with action, dialogue with observation. It's a perceptive portrayal of a family in crisis, set against various UK backdrops, which perfectly observes the chaos and disappointments of family life without being overly sensationalist or sentimental. If you like family/human interest stories that are a cut above the cliches of mainstream fiction, I would highly recommend this book. It has certainly made me want to investigate other titles by Cinnamon Press, as they seem to have a sharp eye for a great novel. I look forward to Shelagh Weeks' next work!
