She was made a Doctor of Literature by Durham University in 2009.


'An absorbing and haunting novel' -- Daily Mail 'A fascinating novel, a richly woven tapestry presented with a vividness that brings the characters from myth to real life' -- Evening Standard 'Mary Stewart, enchantress ... an ability to evoke a situation, a mood or a season with a few phrases of prose that are almost verse' -- Daily Telegraph 'A perfect trip out of the present.' -- New York Times Book Review
