"Fascinating and superb story telling"
An extremely penetrating examination of a marriage. The structure of the novel leaves you wanting to revisit it immediately. I was a big fan of EJH since coming across the Cazalet novels and although this is a slightly more bleak take it demonstrates her superb empathy with characters yet again.
"Fantastic.... So pleased I persevered ..."
Extraordinarily affecting.... I did find the beginning difficult - the characters seemingly so estranged from each other and themselves.... But slowly EJH describes the events that have brought them to this place....
It's unusual to find a book written backwards but it soon grows on the reader (listener) to the extent of providing emotional insight which may not be evident the right way round. EJH has a gift for displaying the most raw emotions and does not let us down!
