Atmospheric and disorientating ... A claustrophobic tale of outsiders versus insiders, religious fervour versus age-old paganism and, ultimately, women and men. A tightly told and powerful story of sins, lies and secrets long held * i * Dense and claustrophobic, this well-written novel reprises the old themes of men whose need to control women is so frenzied that they cannot see any female as an independent human being * Literary Review * This highly imaginative novel and its meticulously created community of characters was an addictive read with twists and turns and a wonderful sense of place. Beautifully written, beguiling and compelling A beautiful piece of writing - hypnotically convincing, eerie and disturbing. Mayhew's is a voice I long to hear more of Exploring the consequences of staying silent at one woman's expense, this highly atmospheric tale is both thrilling and poignant * Heat * Pacey and original - Mayhew's characters will enthral and appal in equal measure * Woman * A clever, claustrophobic story of suspicion and superstition * Sunday Express *
