One of the most exciting books to be published this year
[A] delicately stitched, finely patterned and poetic novel... packed with shock and hope
A startlingly original, intelligent and beautiful first novel that I found riveting from page one. I can only wait with great anticipation for what comes next from Peggy Riley
'A literary page-turner'
'Once in a while a book comes along that can not only grip you but keep you thinking long after the last page. Enter Amity & Sorrow... a stunningly original contemporary classic [with] remarkable characterisation and intense plot. I urge you to read Riley's novel'
'A story about God, Sex and Farming, as two girls do a runner from a cult. It's ace'
'A debut that will haunt and inspire'
'A taut debut, this will appeal to fans of Emma Donoghue's Room'
'An impressive and often pretty harrowing debut novel [with] strength and power'
