Things We Have in Common (2015)
Tasha Kavanagh
"Unsettling, deeply moving and very, very readable. I loved it."

Three Things About Elsie (2018)
Joanna Cannon
"A very special book that makes us think about ourselves and others more deeply … a terrific pageturner."
thumb
The Western Wind (2018)
Samantha Harvey
"Harvey is up there with the best writers working today. Here she makes the medieval world feel as relevant and pressing as tomorrow morning because - as always - she captures the immutable stuff of the human condition."

The Illumination of Ursula Flight (2018)
Anna-Marie Crowhurst
"This 17th century coming-of-age tale is at once subversive, moving and utterly fresh and original."
