Press Reviews

"A serious, fascinating work, indeed a great novel . . . leaves its readers mesmerized." - ABC Literario

"Excellently plotted and written with that perfect simplicity that tends to escape notice and which has characterized Gaite's novels from the start. .. . . She has once again made the difficult art of writing into easy reading." - El Mundo

". . . intensely serious, literary and wryly humorous, [her] mesmerizing, labyrinthine sentences induce a sense of wandering the corridors and topiaried gardens of Marienbad." - Sunday Times
