From the PublisherThe New Yorker A beautiful, knowing novel about isolation and loneliness.
The Wall Street Journal An extraordinary novel....spare, pointed [and] extremely moving.
The Village Voice Literary Supplement Sacred Country is...about the unexpected and its pleasures, the thrill of rounding a corner and finding something is not at all what you thought, even when that something is yourself...brilliant.
The New York Times Book Review A book that we give to our friends and are glad to have read...Tremain gives us a precisely imagined landscape and...characters that we come to care deeply about.
The Boston Sunday Globe A stunning achievement.
The London Times Evening Standard Sacred Country, by even the most exacting standards, is an unqualified success.
The Washington Post The writing in this novel is a sheer delight....skilled, intelligent storytelling at its best.
The Literary Review (London) There is no one like Tremain as far as the eye can see....Her book is one to admire and enjoy. It is funny, absorbing, and quite original. I've read nothing to touch it this year.
The Boston Sunday Globe Rose Tremain's purpose is to probe and illumine the mystery of identity with particular poignancy and rare compassion....intricate and rewarding fiction.
Los Angeles Times Mary's story is superficially bizarre, yet Tremain makes her not just real but moving and blithe....There is a hint of the magical or providential at work.
