Review:

"A powerful evocation of the Pacific world...Enough plot, mystery and diversion for your average Victorian triple-decker." Adam Lively -- Sunday Times

"An intriguing, warm-toned, well-written and spirited novel, a credit to its tradition." John Spurling -- Times Literary Supplement

"An unforgettable novel, meant to be read again and again in disbelief and understanding." Lynne Perri, USA Today -- USA Today

"Perhaps the greatest achievement of this novel is the way it reads as something intimate, notwithstanding the grandeur of its scope." Mary Ambrose -- National Post (Canada)

"Reminiscent of Wright's fellow Canadian Margaret Atwood...Capacious, thoughtful, genuinely gripping." James Bradley -- The Sunday Age (Australia)
