‘This fictional disaster echoes with real emotions. I read it twice and believed every word.’ ~ J J Marsh, Author

‘What a book! I found it incredibly hard to put down.’ ~ Tara Greaves

‘With a full cast of true-to-life Londoners and a fascinating and timely premise, Davis casts a spell over her readers.’ ~ Kendra Olson

‘This is a stunning book, written by an author so skilled at both the big and little, the near and far, the personal and the collective, that you’ll walk away from the conclusion feeling as if you’ve truly been on a journey.’ ~ Lorraine Devon Wilke, Author
