"Superb. . . . [A] heart-gladdening and heartbreaking drama." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"De Bernières writes with whimsical sympathy." --The Guardian

"Deft delineation of character is one of Louis de Bernières' strengths. He does not caricature his people by highlighting their quirks, but shows them in action or dealing with inner conflicts. Consequently, the plot is not imposed on them by the exigencies of telling a story, but develops from their personalities and behavior." --The Washington Times

"Witty and heartfelt. . . . De Bernières creates an impressionistic depiction of Britain recovering from one world war and slipping inexorably into another. . . . An irresistible reading experience." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A richly enjoyable, agreeably old-fashioned novel. . . . De Bernières has so completely immersed himself in the period of which he is writing that his book . . . recalls bestsellers of the 1920s and 30s." --The Scotsman

"Told with the usual warmth, subtlety, and emotional intelligence that de Bernières brings to his fiction." --Sydney Morning Herald

"Wonderful." --The Daily Telegraph

"This tragicomic romp has a winning glint in its eye, delivering oodles of Downton-esque entertainment as it portrays a changing Britain poised uneasily on the brink of modernity." --Daily Mail

"[A] heart-tugging tale of love, loss, guilt and regret." --Sunday Express
