Snow Country Reviews

A fine and profoundly intelligent novel, written by an author who balances big ideas with human emotion. Wistful, yearning and wise. -- Elizabeth Day
Faulks's most poignant love story yet -- Antony Beevor
What we're reading on holiday. * The Times *
Sebastian Faulks' latest novel is beautifully written, shot through with a sense of the frailty of love that is at times reminiscent of William Faulkner's The Wild Palms... This is a superb novel * Spectator *
A 5* masterpiece that I devoured in a day * New Books Magazine *
