Daily Telegraph, Sinclair McKay:
‘exquisitely summoned by Duffy…. Theodora is winningly quick-witted and fundamentally indomitable. This is a story rich in colour, texture and taste, told in a fleet-footed narrative.’

Mail on Sunday:
‘Duffy succeeds brilliantly in breathing life into her proto-feminist heroine and rescuing her from relative obscurity.’

Yay. (and can the Guardian now please give the book a stunning review so I can redress my own personal political imbalance here?)
