Critical Praise

“Vincenzi pulls out all the stops in this orchestral saga. . . . The mystery of who [Baby Bianca’s] mother is serves as the spine of this fat, satisfying novel . . . The various narrative themes crescendo through several all-hands-on-deck scenes . . . the women are, without exception, multifaceted, smart and brave, and their happiness is hard won. A U.K. bestseller, the book offers major escape and abandon for summer.”

——Publishers Weekly starred review

“It’s time Americans caught Vincenzi fever, because it’s almost a crime she’s not better known here . . . Everything is outsized in Vincenzi’s fiction: sex, money, personality, emotions, plot. And yet she gets all the details --- about human behavior and women’s conflicted lives --- just right. It’s perfect escapism.”

——USA Today

“She’s the plot-twist queen.”
