‘A sensuous interweaving of the famous voices, Odysseus, Penelope, Kalypso and Circe, even the many headed monster Skylla, they slyly point up the weak links in Odysseus' account of his Great Wanderings. So the hero becomes human: callous, deeply divided in himself, yet courageous and in his fashion true.’

‘A story of rivals and lovers, of two woman and a man, of hunted revolutionaries and fat cats, of passion and tragedy. A three generation story woven against a rich and complex political background, it links three very different worlds, Southern England; Key West; and the imaginary mountains of Tiotemala, Central America’. Ruth Fainlight's first novel choice for Christmas, Independent on Sunday.
'"A story rare for these days, where passion and private gain struggle with a sense of right and self... immense subtlety and finesse', Dorothy Schwarz, Quality Women's Fiction.
Ambit Magazine ran a ten page extract from 'Of Love and Terror' in 2001.
