Destined to become a classic . . . Elegantly written and totally immersive, Quinn's debut is a wonder
*Daily Mail*

Quinn creates a world so rich with observation, detail, humanity and heart that you are incapable of doing anything but drinking it in with greedy delight
*YOU magazine*

A crumbling old country manor, three unconventional siblings and the looming threat of war makes for a classic coming-of-age tale, as imaginative Cristabel, sweet Flossie and charismatic Digby attempt to find their roles in life. Brimful of charm, and wonderfully immersive, this is a captivating read
*Daily Mail*

My book of the year. I adored this beautifully compulsive story with serious Cazalet vibes. Wild and wilful Cristabel was the perfect heroine
*Red Magazine, The 10 Best Books of 2022*

In classic English Country House novel style, [The Whalebone Theatre] focuses on the younger generation amidst a backdrop of scandalous adult misbehaviour. This is a chunky novel to get lost in, full of pacy plotting and luscious language
*The Independent*

The Whalebone Theatre is absolute aces ... Quinn's imagination and adventuresome spirit are a pleasure to behold
*New York Times*

I was swept away by this compelling, beautifully written debut and its plucky heroine
*Good Housekeeping*

One of those big chunky stories that swallows you whole - and it's beautifully written too
*The Times*

Written with heart and humour

[A] brilliant debut ... A truly immersive read. The plot unfolds gradually, allowing you to really connect with the characters, all of whom are very real with their fears and foibles ... Fascinating
