'Unputdownable... Helen Sedgewick saw into the future and that future is now! It's an incredible book! READ IT.'

- Lemn Sissay on When the Dead Come Calling

'Helen Sedgwick is one of Scotland's finest contemporary storytellers.'

- Claire Askew, author of All the Hidden Truths

'Sedgwick's writing is minutely observational, clever and warm. Her portrayal of the closed world of a remote community, however, will chill you to the bone.'

- Scotsman

'The final twist works well and adds an extra layer… both surprising and moving.'
