'The landscapes are awesome... a lavish package of issues to ponder, people to engage with and writing to savour. The bitter taste of environmental gloom is sweetened by a good story, well told'

Format: Paperback
Sparse, lyrical prose perfectly suited to capturing the harsh Alaskan tundra, the brutality of unmarried motherhood in 1940's Ireland, and the stilted indifference of the British aristocracy to the new money of 1960's. All of this is underpinned by the desolation of fragmented, shattered love. Never comfortable reading, there are too many finely depicted characters who leave the pages too soon, and too little humour to make me mourn their passing. The text jumps awkwardly between families, eras, and locations, but the autor's descriptive powers hold the story together. I think Jules Hardy has written a couple of books since this one and I will be interested to see how she has developed as a writer.
