I loved Rosamund Lupton's two previous books and was enthralled by this one for the first third of the novel. She writes with such imagination, beautiful prose and emotion that it is almost impossible to dislike but...the story line in this novel is so far fetched that it reaches the realms of silliness. There is also a strong sense of being preached at about the wonders of Alaska and the damning consequences of fracking which becomes boring after a while. This had the potential to be another wonderful and innovative book if it had stayed just a touch nearer to reality.

Compelling story, a real page turner, until the last chapter where the story becomes ridiculously implausible and spoils a good book. I didn't like the narration of Ruby, the child, to begin with, but I became accustomed to her.
