I love this book!

Natalia relates the story and the result is a woven tapestry of storytelling; mixing folklore, history, and the power of memory to create a story with layers of depth.

The themes are constructed in such detail, together with the rich descriptions and interactions between characters, that it becomes a book that is almost liveable. Everything interlinked in a carefully-crafted work that quickly became one of my favourite works of fiction.

I am overwhelmed that someone who should have such a young voice has written a book whose style deserves its place amongst the modern classics.
