Review:
Costa Book Awards Judges: "The repressive society of ordinary people is elegantly portrayed in an assured novel of great note."

What the papers say:
"An elegant, subtle, haunting novel that stayed with me long after I finished it. Sadie Jones has a long literary future ahead of her" -- Tracy Chevalier "The prose is elegant and spare, but the story it reveals is raw and explosive... Devastatingly good'" -- Eithne Farry Daily Mail "Jones's story is imbued with brooding atmosphere and drama. Understated and elegantly narrated with attention to period detail, this is a gripping love story with a twist. If you liked Atonement by Ian McEwan, you'll love this" Harper's Bazaar "Eminently readable first novel...reads like a thriller, the tension and menace build expertly...a powerful, promising first novel" Financial Times "She writes with simmering intensity... particularly strong on atmosphere... Jones uses small, startling phrases to convey depths of passion and information and she can make seemingly innocuous passages radiate beauty" Sunday Telegraph

Author's Biography:
