About the Author:

Helen Dunmore was an award-winning novelist, poet and children's writer, who will be remembered for the wisdom, lyricism, compassion and immersive beauty of her writing. In her lifetime, she published eight collections of poetry, many novels for both adults and children, and two collections of short stories. She won the Orange Prize for Fiction with her novel A Spell of Winter, and her novel The Siege was shortlisted for the Orange Prize and the Whitbread Prize for Fiction.

Review:

"The most action-packed and satisfying of the four stories, with vivid animal portraits, a vast undersea journey and a climactic fight. Ingo will be missed." The Times "The Crossing of Ingo is just as beautiful as the first three books in this wonderful quartet. These are books that will be read for generations. They have everything - family dynamics, the nature of love, coming of age, resolution of conflict, world as entity, not resource. And they are written with great beauty, but more than that, they are written with an unmistakeable voice and a love of words." The Book Bag Praise for The Deep "Dunmore's writing, steeped in maritime legends, is exquisite. The descriptions of plunging 'sleek and fast as a seal' through turquoise water into the rich blue-purple that lies beneath are gorgeous.. The Deep is sophisticated and supple." The Daily Telegraph "Dunmore's series is written in a sensual, descriptive prose that evokes the watery kingdom with conviction. Characters are clear-cut and written with exuberance." Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times Culture "Just as spellbinding as its predecessors." Waterstone's Books Quarterly Praise for The Tide Knot: "Intensely compelling... gorgeous." Amanda Craig, The Times "Dunmore's graceful style is what makes the unbelievable believable..." The Independent on Sunday "Like the ocean itself, this book is deep and strange and marvellous." Nial MacMonagle, The Irish Times Praise for Ingo: "Ingo has a haunting, dangerous beauty all of its own." Philip Ardagh, Guardian "The electric thrill of swimming with dolphins, of racing along currents, and of leaving the world of reason and caution behind are described with glorious intensity." Amanda Craig, The Times "Compellingly lyrical." Independent "Helen Dunmore may have a few drowned readers on her conscience, so enticing and believable is the underwater world she creates in Ingo." Telegraph
