‘In many ways Sue Gee reminds me of the early Iris Murdoch. A small remote community, hedged in by brooding hills and circled by buzzards; a group of singular adults, each with a history and a secret mental landscape... She has a faultless ability to evoke a sense of place... a memorable achievement’

Valerie Grove, Daily Express
