Susan Hill is an exceptional writer at the height of her powers. Every word is precisely right: the descriptions of the village and the pit, the people and the farm are exact and true; the heartbreak is inevitable yet new; and the imagery and imagination take your breath away.

A very well told, but immensely sad story
This story is beautifully written with details that bring the characters to life. This is why the story is so very sad - you really empathise with them and so their fate becomes really quite distressing. You need to feel strong to listen to this story.

Susan Hill is such a talented writer, and this story shows how versatile she is. The story is profoundly moving and I would love to read a sequel.
