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
