"Reading Child of Steens Mountain, I felt as if I was holding a rare gift in my hands — a window into a way of life that although not far in the past has now almost entirely disappeared from our world; and equally, a story of a young girl's coming of age, and the bonds of family, written simply and beautifully, chiming with all our familiar human concerns. I was completely taken with this book from page one."
