This review is from: Apple Tree Yard (Hardcover)
I have enjoyed all Louise Doughty's earlier books and I think this one is very clever indeed. I do appreciate a book which is so well written and yet so easy to read which of course means it is difficult to put down until the very end. I suppose you could argue that not many women would have transgressed in the way our heroine does, but when a tale is woven so well - just enjoy. The research that obviously went into the book is also very evident and this sense of how realistic the court case is added to the enjoyment for me.
