“Suspenseful and chilling, this novel is destined to become a classic.” - Governor General Award Committee
“It’s very refreshing to find such a comprehensive story in a standalone book, especially one with humour, kindness, and some real evil.” - The Globe and Mail
“In this regard and others, The Night Gardener is a highly satisfactory instance not only of the traditional Gothic thriller but of a thriller in the broad sense, with a great deal of action and genuinely appealing protagonists.” - The National Post
“Lots of creepiness, memorable characters, a worthy message … make this cautionary tale one readers will not soon forget.” - Kirkus (starred review)
