The Other Side of the Bridge Reviews


A beautiful read, on every level * Independent on Sunday *
Like the great 19th-century novelists of provincial life, Mary Lawson is fluent in the desperate intensity of the small, individual dramas of respectable people - and she paints an eloquent picture * Sunday Telegraph *
Evokes beautifully the big joys and sorrows of most people, no matter how small their town * The Times *
Discreetly powerful * Daily Telegraph *
This is a fine book - an enthralling read, both straightforward and wonderfully intricate * Guardian *
