Books make beautiful Christmas gifts, and they'll be swept away by this warm hug of a book! 'Pure heaven, from first word to last' Sunday Times 'A tour de force' Sarah Winman, author of Still Life This is the story of an old English manor house by the sea, with crumbling chimneys, draping ivy and a library full of dusty hardbacks. It's the story of the three children who grow up there, and the adventures they create for themselves while the grown-ups entertain endless party guests. This is the story of a whale that washes up on a beach, whose bones are claimed by a twelve-year-old girl with big ambitions and an even bigger imagination. An unwanted orphan who grows into an unmarriageable young woman, fiercely determined to do things differently. But as the children grow to adulthood, another story has been unfolding in the wings. And when the war finally takes centre stage, they find themselves cast, unrehearsed, into roles they never expected to play. They raised themselves on stories. Now it's time for them to write their own... 'One of those big chunky stories that swallows you whole' The Times 'Beautifully compulsive ... The Whalebone Theatre will feel like a much-loved book even if you're reading it for the first time' Red Magazine

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 * Psychologies * [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 * Dorset Magazine *
