Great sense of time and place
Sally Garner has a very different take on historical fiction to most writers of such period stories - she has a remarkable ability to put herself in the position of characters of all social levels, even four hundred years ago. Add Juliet Stevenson's astonishing range of characterisations, and this becomes something very special. Well worth a listen.

This is truly a fictional masterpiece. The settings, both of the fairy realm and particularly 1650's London are beautifully realised. The story deals brilliantly with such themes as religion and child abuse. At times I was moved to tears. Coriander is a heroin to love. Beautifully written and read, this book is an esential for any story collection.
