"A page-turner marked by brilliant psychological suspense."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Perfectly executed and chilling . . . A sad and oddly moving tale of lost opportunities and misplaced hopes."
--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"A battle for the soul, waged between the forces of good and evil . . . Mr. Trevor shows just how wise and wry and funny and morally astute an observer of the human comedy he is."
--Patrick McGrath, front page, The New York Times Book Review

"A thriller lifted to the level of high art . . ."
--Publishers Weekly

"In thirteen novels and eight short-story collections [William Trevor] has shown himself a close observer, a fine stylist, a master psychologist. In Felicia's Journey . . . he brings all these qualities into play, and adds to them a teasing manipulation of the reader's sensibilities, so that the book has the elegant tensions of a high-class thriller."
--The New York Review of Books

"One of the very best writers of our era."
--Front page, The Washington Post Book World

Winner of the Whitbread Book of the Year Award and the Sunday Express Book of the Year Award

'You're beautiful.' Johnny told her. So, full of hope, seventeen year-old Felicia crosses the Irish Sea to England to find her lover and tell him she is pregnant. Desperately searching for Johnny in the bleak post-industrial Midlands, she is instead found by Mr Hilditch, a strange and lonely man, a collector and befriender of homeless young girls . . .

'Immensely readable. The plot twist is both sinister and affecting, and so skilfully done that you remember why authors had plot twists in the first place'
Phillip Hensher, GUARDIAN

'Immaculately calculated, cunning. We are as startled as his characters when the faint air of menace turns into a tempost'

'Trevor is a master of both language and storytelling. This sinister, elegant, piercingly sad novel is surely one of the books of the year'

'A masterpiece, You read and are dazzled. It has one of the most memorable and convincing, most sinister and terrifying of characters created in the modern novel'
Susan Hill

'Masterly in its tension' IRISH TIMES
