The Paper House reviewed by Wendy

The Paper House

The Paper House is a difficult book to review. The subject matter- grief and depression – need to be handled skilfully in order not to deter the reader who might be looking for more uplifting subject matter.

Anna Spargo Ryan has managed to create a first novel that is both realistic and heartwarming. With her lyrical writing, quirky characters and calm control over the narrative she succeeds in showing us a couple’s triumph over the devastation of mental Illness.
