‘This author has a remarkable ability to convey the human emotions, passions and fears so incredibly well.

For The Family Line

Wilkinson ably navigates the tender, sometimes fraught exchanges between her protagonists. Though its scope is ambitious, and could easily have veered off-course, deft interweaving of complex themes makes for a haunting début.’
