Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Cedar is a work of the highest order. An enthralling and powerful evocation of time and place, character, moral choices, immoral certainties, human nature and fate with Butler creating an emotional eddy that draws you in from one page to the next. Flawlessly written it's a novel that transcends the historically fraught centuries it covers and doesn't require much effort to surrender to and enjoy. Against a background of relentless change, it's a telling to be savoured with the relationship dynamics wonderfully observed and Butler's exquisite ear for dialogue echoing the thoughts of her characters with a timely clarity which proves wholly endearing throughout. Marrying historical social and cultural influences with enjoyable storytelling is far from straightforward but Butler achieves it with a remarkable sense of immediacy by inhabiting the minds of her characters so we see events unfold through their eyes and thus making the chequered history of The Cedar ever more poignant. In short, all her characters come alive. They live and die and in recounting their lives her prose evoke the sounds and sights of bygone centuries without appearing to work too hard to get period details right.
 
Beautifully written and an extraordinary read with all the hallmarks of a classic, The Cedar is recommended without reservation."
