"As gripping as Hilary Mantel and as convincing as Sarah Perry, Crow Court achieves a rarity in historical fiction: it truly places you in the here and now of a world once removed. Time slips away and life – real life, with all its ugly faces and animalistic impulses – shines through. Debut novels shouldn’t be this perfectly formed."

BEN MYERS

 
   

"A gripping mystery, beautifully teased out over several decades, full of intrigue and ambiguity."

ANDY HAMILTON

 
   

"This clever narrative is both page-turning and original - an innovative and beautifully-written historical novel that features an array of diverse characters and voices from its vividly-realised Dorset setting."

JANE HARRIS

 
   

"There are so many wonderful parts to the book. The storm at sea is brilliant and the end is deeply moving... You keep thinking you know where he is going but then you are surprised. There is a warmth and humanity, an acceptance of the vagaries and challenges of life. Plus a great sense of period and place."

ALICE JOLLY

 
   

"A confident and exciting debut: exactly observed, densely textured and richly flavoured, Crow Court is throbbing with life."

RICK GEKOSKI

 
   

"Historical fiction has an exciting new voice, a new star. Crow Court already looks, feels and smells like a classic."
