Blue Mercy Review, Bookbag UK

“I don't often beg authors for a review copy of their book but having read Orna's debut novel, I made an exception for this book [and it ] is even more skilful as the past and the present are seamlessly interwoven… I thought at first that I would not warm to Izzy's daughter, Star – some of the footnotes which she's added to her mother's story are terse (or worse) – but the splendid and most unexpected ending put everything into place.

This isn't a short read, or even an easy read, but it is infinitely rewarding… Pull the delicate strands of the relationships and see how the present mirrors the past, see how history repeats itself. It's superb.” THEBOOKBAG.CO.UK
