Nicholas Shakespeare, author of Bruce Chatwin and The Dancer Upstairs - This epic narrative . . . is pacey and accesible without ever patronising the reader; deeply moving
I defy anyone to put this book down. It's a wonderful novel: a big, bold-hearted love story that will sweep you up and take you, uncomplaining, on a journey full of heartbreak and light.
A gripping adventure story, which can also be read at deeper levels . . . enthralling.
