Reviews

Intense, troubling, semi-miraculous ... IT is not the only school story to be a classic; but I can think of no other that is a work of art--Elizabeth Bowen
Evelyn Waugh called [her] one of the very best novelists of the day - a title she still deserves--Carol Shields
A small masterpiece, the compelling and passionate story of young girls at a repressive religious school, told with such lyricism and elegant economy, such subtle understanding--Tessa Hadley
A masterpiece. Beautifully written, it is a calm and factual record of the slow death of the soul--Selina Hastings
Frost in May is the unsurpassed novel of convent school life. This story of a clash between a determined young girl and an authoritarian regime is both perceptive and painfully emotional, convincing in every detail--Hermione Lee, Observer
