Alex Miller is one of my favourite authors, and I enjoyed this book. It's not as riveting as his previous books however. I didn't ever feel empathy for Autumn. If you like him, try Lovesong, Conditions of Faith, journey to the Stone Country or Landscape of Farewell. All brilliant!

It is a terrific book, but Sabiha's heart's desire alienated me - I couldn't empathise.
