'[A] beautifully crafted story of love, loss determination, luck, and perseverance ... Lee's skilful development of her characters and story lines will draw readers into the work. Those who enjoy historical fiction with strong characterisations will not be disappointed as they ride along on the emotional journeys offered in the author's latest page-turner' Library Journal.

'An epic, multi-generational saga' Best of 2017, Mail on Sunday.

'Min Jin Lee has the confidence to leave gaps of years in her tale, to tell it in vignettes ... Keeps you wanting to know what happens next ... It's an enjoyable tale in its own right. But I can't help thinking it might just be a bit more important than that' The Bookbag.

'A gorgeous saga of survival, family and love, told in effortless prose' Phoenix Magazine - best of 2017.
