it was amazing

Anna Spargo-Ryan, you have done it again! This latest novel is even better than The Paper House (my favourite book of 2016). In the few days it took to read (I would have finished in one sitting if I'd had time), I went to bed with a sickening worry for the little boy in the novel (I actually lost sleep over him) - that is how well Spargo writes her characters. Spargo never tells us about the characters, she shows them to us; so fleshed out and life-like that I wanted to pull the little boy from the story to feed him, cuddle him, and keep him safe. It's been years since a book has moved me this way.
The Gulf if my favourite book of 2017.
