Spilt Milk

Editorial reviews

Spilt Milk

Well worth a read, but hasn’t earned a place on my ‘favourites’ shelf.

This is a soapy, eventful saga expertly paced and delivering doses of emotion as efficiently as an intravenous drip.

Spilt Milk will be enjoyed by those who like family sagas but it’s much more than that: Hodgkinson’s thoughtful writing demands careful reading.

With its strong storytelling, haunting characters and beautiful, supple prose, Hodgkinson’s fiction deserves a wider audience.
