"Fans of intelligent historical fiction will be enthralled by a story so original and so fully imagined. Meek shows the era as alien, which it is, and doesn't falsify it by assimilating it to ours. But his characters are recognizably warm and human" HILARY MANTEL, author of Wolf Hall

"An inventive and original novel that captures the distant past and pins it to the page" The Times of London

"A glorious imaginative feat, full of complex, compelling, believable characters. Rarely have I been so captivated by a novel, so keen to hurry back to it and reimmerse myself in its world" SARAH WATERS, author of Fingersmith
