Listen to a sample

[A] stunning achievement. The plotting is elegant, intricate and assured . . . it will give you much to savour.

Independent

A lyrical and, at times, astonishingly beautiful account of how little it is possible to know about those closest to us.

Financial Times

Addictive to read ... Groff has drawn a woman so complex it seems that with every chapter a new layer is revealed, each as deliciously intriguing as the next … The result is a compelling portrait of an unconventional marriage across two decades.

Stylist

Enough betrayal, vengeance and sex to read like one of the Greek tragedies

Observer

Rich, lyrical and rewarding.
