Customer Review

on 3 February 2014
This book engages the reader from the start: 'Margarita' has no memory and a gunshot wound. We are then drawn into the atmosphere of her surroundings, we feel we are there. Sophie Jonas-Hill has a beautiful, evocative writing style that engages all the senses. At times her writing is breathtaking: 'The house moaned and cracked as it cooled, twisting against the wet earth as if it were caught in a bear trap.' is a good example. At other times it raises a smile: 'There I was, smothered in dust, debris and redneck aristocracy.' But there's much more to this novel than wonderful prose: it's also heaving with unpredictable plot twists that make it impossible to put down. A stunning debut novel.
