About the Author:

Sue Peebles was born in Scotland in 1955, but spent some of her childhood in Detroit. Since graduating in Psychology she has worked as a researcher, social worker and university teacher. Sue lives in Fife and this is her first novel.

Review:

"Piercingly lovely...a pleasure to read" -- Catherine Taylor Guardian "A vibrant, witty and passionate tale of a family struggling to overcome tragedy...Peebles' prose is consistently startling - there isn't an ordinary or hackneyed sentence or sentiment in the book...beautifully expresses the joys and tribulations of family life" -- Ian Critchley Daily Telegraph "I loved it...it's about human relationships, stark and simple, when they are tested to the limit. Who would have thought a novel about a stroke could be so compelling?... An excellent novel, tender and witty and shot through with perception of many kinds" -- Margaret Forster "If there is justice in the world she will be collecting prizes by the basketload for this extraordinary novel" -- Lesley McDowell The Scotsman "The delicacy and care with which she draws the stricken Lomond is the outstanding feat of this ambitions work" -- Rosemary Goring Sunday Herald
