'Glorious, tender, true. Read it' - Sunday Telegraph

'Writing of this quality comes from an attention to reality so exact that it goes beyond a skill and becomes a virtue' - Hilary Mantel

'Masterly. Fierce, urgent, clear. So good it gave me goosebumps. One of the best writers in America' - Sunday Times

Lucy is recovering from an operation in a New York hospital when she wakes to find her estranged mother sitting by her bed. They have not seen one another in years. As they talk Lucy finds herself recalling her troubled rural childhood and how it was she eventually arrived in the big city, got married and had children. But this unexpected visit leaves her doubting the life she's made: wondering what is lost and what has yet to be found.

'Deeply affecting, heartbreaking. A powerful storyteller immersed in the nuances of human relationships, weaving family tapestries with compassion, wisdom and insight' - Observer

'Hypnotic, yielding a glut of human truths to do with flight, memory and longing' - Mail on Sunday

'Tender, elegiac, this is the story of a single life that also manages to tell the story of many' - Independent

'Sympathetic, subtle and shocking' - Emma Healey, Guardian
