The Tower (2024)
Flora Carr
"Such a vivid, visceral read, you feel you're locked in the tower alongside the characters, acting out a royal family drama. I am moved and impressed."

The Painter's Daughters (2024)
Emily Howes
"Beautifully written, moving and skillfully handled, The Painter's Daughters is as exquisitely and tenderly rendered as a Gainsborough painting."
