"A shining delight of a novel". (New York Times). "Clever and soars". (Financial Times). A baby girl is abandoned, banished from London to the storm-ravaged American city of New Bohemia. Her father has been driven mad by jealousy, her mother to exile by grief.

Seventeen years later, Perdita doesn't know a lot about who she is or where she's come from - but she's about to find out. Jeanette Winterson's cover version of The Winter's Tale vibrates with echoes of Shakespeare's original and tells a story of hearts broken and hearts healed, a story of revenge and forgiveness, a story that shows that whatever is lost shall be found. "Emotionally wrought and profoundly intelligent...A supremely clever, compelling and emotionally affecting novel that deserves multiple readings to appreciate its many layers".

(Mail on Sunday). "There are passages here so concisely beautiful they give you goosebumps". (Observer).

"Pulsates with such authenticity and imaginative generosity that I defy you not to engage with it". (Independent).
