“This novel takes its title from the seventeenth century hymn My Song is Love Unknown and this excellent first novel is also about love unknown, about sin and its consequences, about grief and even about redemption. Although there is war (the novel is set in rural Britain in the twin times of the 1920s and 1940s), suicide, loneliness and despair, it is a deeply hopeful novel.”
Fr Richard Peers, Diocese of Liverpool
