Praise

An Irish Times Book of the Year

“Stunning…overdue in becoming a sensation…Roberts’s messy collision of desires and drives leads to thwarted dreams, heartbreak, betrayal and a prison sentence. It’s a story as old as time, but, to my mind, it’s never been told so effectively, principally because Roberts invests us emotionally in both sides of the tug-of-war…It’s not a happy story. It’s better than that, fraught and honest.”  —New York times Book Review

“Roberts beautifully captures the devastation of being unable or unwilling to live in one’s truth…A melancholy story about love, loss, and unnecessary suffering.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Complex and nuanced exploration of a love triangle…a moving depiction of human passions, frailties, and struggles.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“A humane and evocative portrait of a time when lives were destroyed by intolerance.”  —The Guardian
 
“A moving story of longing and frustration.”  —The Observer

“Bethan Roberts is a fearless writer.” —Louise Welsh, author of The Cutting Room, on The Good Plain Cook
