'Stunning' Guardian. 'Her literary achievement is astonishing ... A superb book' Scotsman. 'I was enchanted by the magic of the storytelling. This is a novelist with a future' Michael Holroyd, New Statesman. 'Emotional intensity is foregrounded and the nuances of Neil and Lizzie's relationship are set out in the writing like a heart on a sleeve ... Neil's psychological flaws are convincingly drawn' Guardian. 'Compelling' Daily Mail. 'This is an accomplished debut, beautiful and compelling' Good Book Guide. 'Karin Altenberg's debut novel is an impressive work of research and descriptive writing about Nature and place in a second language ... a penetrating insight into the psychology of a religious zealot and a relationship rolling inevitably towards destruction' Country Life.
