‘Boyd is as good as ever at capturing time and place, and at blurring the line between fact and fiction’ Daily Telegraph



 
Sweet Caress paperback

 


‘Boyd is as good as ever at capturing time and place, and at blurring the line between fact and fiction’ Daily Telegraph

‘One of Britain’s best and best-loved storytellers … a skilfully plotted, cleverly constructed and highly entertaining novel. It’s a book crying out for screen adaptation’ Sunday Express

‘A gutsy epic spanning the better part of the 20th century … A paean to a complicated lift shaped by curveballs, it’s rich in psychological depth, zingy characters and period detail’ Mail on Sunday

‘Witty and resourceful, Boyd’s heroine immediately appeals … This is the story of a life shaped and scarred by war and also by those accidents of fate over which none of us can exert power’ Daily Mail

‘Boyd is a gifted and intelligent story-teller, who possesses the charm to beguile us through a tale which, like all his novels, bears testimony to the damage inflicted on the human psyche by love and war’ Independent on Sunday

‘Sweet Caress is a beautifully written, sweeping tale’ Good Housekeeping

‘Wonderful’ Cosmo
