Powerful and compelling… courageous and important. Clare Allan, BAFTA-winning writer.
[The Shadows We Cast] is impressive for a number of reasons, the biggest being the way the psychology of the two central characters is handled, and the extraordinary way we are made to feel sympathy for both characters. Anthony Cartwright, winner of a Betty Trask award.
Extremely hard-hitting and powerfully told. Emily Gowers, editor at Bookouture Publishing
