Review:

"As the characters battle for possession of Christabel, Margaret Forster catches every note and nuance of good intention, misplaced motive and downright selfishness-a remarkable achievement" ( Financial Times)

"Forster has the essential capacity to see everyone's point of view... In that territory of dread and reconciliation which is the family, Forster reigns supreme" ( Guardian)

"Enticingly written-a compelling read" ( Time Out)

"Motherhood is taken out, held up to the light and given a vigorous shaking-a book with impact" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Poignant, impeccably written-especially heart-rending because it is so believable" ( Company)

Book Description:

'Wonderfully rich... Nobody explores the way we live with more intelligence, art or humanity than she does' - Scotsman
