“Gill Schierhout imposes an austere intelligence and sense of regret on this remarkable narrative… No reader could be prepared for the complex tale that unfolds. It is a beautiful book, as bleak as love - or whatever it is that passes for love - and as heartbreaking…” -- Eileen Battersby, Irish Times

“Written with an elliptical elegance reminiscent of Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, this is a strong debut about the grip of memory and the power of one life to impose itself upon another…” -- Adrian Turpin, Financial Times

“Her novel is not unlike the diamonds of which she writes: hard, glinting and multi-faceted, suggestive of intense compression and unfathomable depths...”-- Kerryn Goldsworthy, Sydney Morning Herald
