Review:

A marvellous novel about forbidden passions ( Daily Mail)

An intensely gripping book...written so seductively that some passages sing out from the page, like music for the eyes ( Sunday Times)

A hugely involving story which often stops you in your tracks with the beauty of its writing ( Observer)

An electrifying and original talent, a writer whose style is characterized by a lyrical, dreamy intensity ( Guardian)
