Praise for The Painted Chamber (Short Stories from the author of The Crimson Ribbon)

  • Atmospheric and gripping... The complex relationship between Ruth and Lizzie is wonderfully convincing, tender and devastating in equal measure right up to the last heart-breaking moment

  • Begins at a cracking pace, plunging the reader into the turbulent Civil War period and the terror of witchcraft that came with it... A compelling novel

  • Impressive and original and entertaining story

  • Exceptional... Deftly written, uncluttered and impassioned, this has to be one of the leading historical debuts of the year
