Dawson, whose previous novels include Fred and Edie, shortlisted for the Whitbread and the Orange Prizes, is an elegant but easy writer.  She swiftly hooks the reader in with strong, convincing narrative voices, pacy dialogue, carefully crafted prose and an engagingly dramatic plot.  Important too is one of Dawson’s trademarks, an evocative, brooding sense of location…… a thought-provoking novel about identity, relationships, fate and what we would change if given a second chance.
