About the Author

A former police officer, and council PR, Karen Campbell won the Best New Scottish Writer Award in 2009. She lives in Galloway, Scotland.


"[Campbell] is a vivid, distinctive writer who creates characters and stories we really care about . . . Gratifyingly, Campbell avoids easy answers, showing us that the pieces of most unions, personal and political, rarely fit neatly together, that true feeling comes into them unexpectedly, beyond the parts of our lives we think we can control." --New York Times Book Review on RISE

"An engaging writer introduces herself with this fresh, intelligent entertainment, full of satisfying moving parts." --Kirkus Reviews on RISE

"Campbell has admirably constructed the novel's plot . . . The historical details are informative . . . there are evocative descriptions . . . Highly recommended." --The Historical Novel Society

"I loved it. A great, original character and the plot fairly whizzes along." --Kate Atkinson on The Twilight Time
