“…A delicate, luminous, mysterious book. I am not able to decide what the exact genre is – is it magical realism? Fantasy? Literary fiction? All of the above? It’s hard to define.”
“After reading the first paragraph, I knew I had picked a winner. The story instantly engages you, the words flowing elegantly and as magically as the story itself…”
“This is deeply soulful writing, pitch perfect for our fractured times.”
“Unputdownable…You will read and re-read.”
“Niamh Clune is, in the Irish tradition, a masterful wordsmith. The story is beautifully written, powerful, moving, original and believable.”
