"Read this huge, gloriously entertaining book instead of going to the gym...The Keating girls live in different countries, but they write seamlessly as one." The Times "This is a tremendously accomplished, fullthroated saga delivering romance, betrayal, murder and mayhem...It's the kind of book you have to read by torchlight under the bedclothes after lights out" Daily Mail "Moving and utterly enthralling. You find yourself submerged in the traditions, the touch, the smell, the visible and the invisible world of a glorious yet divided world peppered with chilling, unexptected danger" -- Angela Fisher, author of Africa Adorned
