Editorial Reviews


  • An interesting study in how we intuitively know things aren't right even if we don't know why; how we cope with the lies and subsequent trauma; and how we are not so much in control of events are we like to think we are." -- We Love This Book (The Bookseller)
"...A stunning mixture of manygenres. The criminal story provides popular, psychological,folkloric, parodic, and psychological hints of secret codes tosolve the murder case" -- American Book Review
"A true thriller." -- HP/De Tijd

"What is especially appealing is the doggedness with which Dorrestein endowsher characters. They have boundless survival instinct and infinitecourage, which makes their loneliness all the more poignant." -- Volkskrant
"Profoundly original and heartbreakingly unsentimental" -- The Independent on Sunday on A Heart of Stone

From the Inside Flap

Lucy is the most popular girl in the local elementary school of an idyllic Dutch housing estate. When a bizarre crime rocks her world and sends her mother to prison, Lucy is turned into an outcast and her childhood becomes an ordeal of constant, vicious bullying. After her mother’s release, Lucy’s family decides to escape and make a clean start on a rugged Scottish island. But even here, in this remote corner of the world, Lucy’s past holds a firm grip on her. Told in the alternating voices of the bullies and Lucy, this darkly atmospheric and emotionally-gripping story is part family drama and part mystery.
