Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Duncan’s voice has a maturity and pragmatism that suits Fiona’s characterization. Even as Fiona copes with difficult cases involving children and returns home to an empty house, Duncan remains steady and never maudlin. One can fully imagine Fiona retaining her dignity in the presence of these personal and professional storms, and so Duncan succeeds in this high-quality audiobook.” AudioFile
“Thoughtful, well-wrought novel…McEwan, always a smart, engaging writer, here takes more than one familiar situation and creates at every turn something new and emotionally rewarding. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
