Critics’ Reviews

“This straightforward and engaging book takes a clean, sharp scalpel to dissect a time that has sad parallels with our own. The love story that runs like a gleaming thread through this dark account is one of the most intelligent and satisfying I can remember.” — Marina Endicott

“This admirably direct and plain-spoken novel, free of metaphor, graphically describes the pain and blood and sorrow and joy of both pregnancy and the delivery room, pitting the ideals of a young doctor against the sanctimony of his superiors. A love story as well, Middenrammers awaits the arrival of the BBC, who surely should love it for a new series set in East Yorkshire, gulls wheeling over the fish plant, lovers in the alleys, cries in the night.” — Nicholas Ruddock
