‘a corker, a second book arguably better than her first.
Yes, BETTER THAN HER FIRST. You read that correctly.

And the prose! Flawless. I love finding little niggling details to complain about in every book but I couldn’t find even one in Setterfield’s second book…  Did this book take so long because she was going over it with a fine-toothed comb? Certainly seems like it. And it was worth the wait.

You will love it. YOU WILL. Easily one of the best books I’ve read this year.’

 ‘Setterfield is at her enchanting best as she narrates William’ ruin with such eloquence that even this tale of doom and misery is so seductive that you cannot help but be drawn to it, immerse in it. Undoubtedly one of the most amazing books I have come across this year.

Recommended definitely for those looking for an unusual eerie read.’
