A very good insight into human conditions. An ultimately wonderful story.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. The author sensitively describes the psychiatric 'journey' of Elizabeth Cruikshank and the way her story helped her psychiatrist come to terms with events from his past. There are numerous references to paintings, in particular Carvaggio, which are interweaved throughout the story. The story starts slowly but if you persevere you will find it is worth it as there are some insightful paragraphs and a satisfying conclusion.

Definitely recommend this novel. Smart intelligent read by Ms Vickers. I'm not sure many authors could handle a plot so exquisitely told. It stayed with me for a long time afterwards. Beautifully written too.

I found this to be a difficult book requiring detailed thought the results of which did not always agree with that of the author. Some readers might be of the opinion that the plot was over drawn out. Despite these criticisms Sally Vickers has an engrossing prose style and is always a pleasure to read.

An excellent book - very well written and had intruiging twists running through it - better than some previous books she has written
in my opinion and that of the book club to which I belong.

The whole book is a poised performance, makes you want to read on and has something to say about stories, art, relationships and how we live our lives
