"A gem of a novel."
The Bookseller

"A gorgeously chilling novel."
The Independent

"The main ingredients of this novel are deceptively simple. A man; a woman; a house; a child; a long-kept secret to be revealed, not in a fanfare, but in a series of small and somehow terrible revelations, tortuous as the human heart. It is a beautifully-written and intricately-constructed piece of writing; shining, poetic and sumptuous; a portrait of a sunlit lake, which at any moment may reveal itself to be the scene of a tragedy. Polly Samson is a writer of great insight and sensitivity; her novel is moving, wistful, wise and ultimately hopeful; grown-up in all the right ways, but still with a simplicity that comes directly from the heart."
Joanne Harris

"Dark, sensual and clever. I loved this book so much I finished it then started re-reading it to see how she did it."
Jojo Moyes
