Reviews

"I loved every single sentence of The Boy in the Field. This novel is so intricately woven, its world so vibrantly built, its characters so beautifully and empathically wrought. To experience the world as rendered by Margot Livesey is a singular, extraordinary delight."--Claire Lombardo, author of The Most Fun We Ever Had
"Margot Livesey has the unique ability to find the hidden darkness beneath the surface of our lives, no matter how deeply buried. A deceptively simple story that explores the aftermath of a moment of violence, The Boy in the Field amazed me with its insight, and the subtlety of Livesey's beautiful, almost dreamlike prose. She speaks of a sensation -- "quick as a mousetrap, sharp as a thorn" -- and I can't think of a better description of her work. Quick and sharp."--Kevin Wilson, author of Nothing to See Here
