“John Symons has done it again. This is a complex and deeply rewarding work. But don’t let that put you off! I loved the menace of the book and its tranquil resolution. I think it is a really great book. Like A Tear in the Curtain, it is about children, could be enjoyed by older children and is an absorbing read for adults. It also raises several important issues.”

'This Life of Grace is written with such warmth and deep affection and understanding, bringing the characters vividly to life. Grace was a person of dignity and humility, an unusual combination, to which I felt a sense of eloquence, wit and humour should be added. She was very much a Grace.' Peter Smith of Crane Books
