"Kate Atkinson has scored again with her latest Jackson Brodie mystery. Her offbeat plot and the twisted relationships between the colorful characters kept me enthralled throughout. I savored every moment of this great reading adventure."

"I truly loved this book - the surrealism really worked for me, and immerse the reader in both the world and emotions of the characters. Billy and Lydia were both fantastic characters that were easy to empathize with and cheer for as both of them ran from their problems, past and present, in different ways. Well-written and impossible to put down!."

"I read this book over the course of eight hours on a train and it kept me very happily engaged. The novel follows the lovably irascible Professor Chandra across three continents as he embarks on a unplanned journey of self discovery. The writing is smart and witty, the characters are eclectic and well developed, and the settings are diverse and beautifully drawn. Highly recommend."

Everyone at the store who has read this book has loved it. Part murder mystery, part nature story, part coming of age, part romance, and all heart, this is the tale of Kya Clark, a mysterious woman who has lived alone in the marsh for all her life. When a murder shakes the nearby quiet town, she is dragged into the public eye and through fits and starts begins to leave her isolated existence. Kya is a wonderful and believable character you will grow to love.
