Customer Review

on 8 February 2013
I've just listened to the audio book of this and it blew me away. I found it hard to believe the author is a twenty-something male - he explores the female psyche so well, and they're not young females either.

The character of Christopher - who is somewhere on the autistic spectrum - was brilliantly depicted, and maybe it helped that the narrator brought the writing so vividly to life - a lot can depend on the quality of the narrating with an audio-book.

I wouldn't have imagined being so gripped by descriptions of falconry, or flooding, or the day-to-day running of an animal farm, but despite the almost lyrical style of writing the story is primarily driven by the complex characters of Louisa Smedley - in particular - Maggie, Chrisptopher and Adam, with the backstory of Maggie and Lousia's relationship with David Bryant skillfully woven in. I grew to care about them all, and was sorry when I'd finished.

I've already started listening to Hogan's earlier novel, Blackmoor, and it's shaping up to be every bit as good.
