Review:

'This is by far Brayfield's best book. The fierceness with which she manipulates her characters and plot...grabs the attention' Elizabeth Buchan, SUNDAY TIMES 'HARVEST though heaven knows a good read, is far from trivial. A brilliant textured 'proper' novel...a literary romance featuring the sophisticated English abroad in France.' Fay Weldon, MAIL ON SUNDAY 'HARVEST is cunningly plotted, extremely well-written and compulsively readable.' Beryl Bainbridge 'A great black comedy.' DAILY EXPRESS 'Characters are perceived with a relentlessly clever eye, the domestic details beguile- and the finale will rock the deckchair of the worldliest reader.' SHE 'A cool thriller, cleverly overlaif with issues of power and deception as it heads to its shattering conclusion.' WOMAN'S JOURNAL 'A Haagen-Dazs sundae among holiday reads. It has everything.' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A cleverly plotted, wicked black comedy, modern storytelling at its most enjoyable. Its pace keeps you turning the pages, yet its insights pull you up.' Susan Crosland, LITERARY REVIEW
