Praise for WE ALL BEGIN AS STRANGERS by Harriet Cummings, a beautiful debut novel you'll want to recommend to everyone - for fans of Joanna Cannon, Rachel Joyce and Jessie Burton: Wonderful... Full of surprising twists, right up until the final revelations
I so enjoyed WE ALL BEGIN AS STRANGERS. No 'characters' in sight - just meticulous, tender, complex portraits of people
A dazzling debut... Beautifully plotted, fantastically written and compellingly strange
I was reminded of William Golding's 'The Lord of The Flies'... A book about community and how trusts can be so easily broken
Explores ideas of loneliness and longing
Cummings' talent as a writer is unarguably remarkable, and her future in the literary arts looks bright
Skilfully and satisfying done... It's a good story well told.
A great summer read... Suspense, plot twists and drama make this an exciting read to the very end
