Review Praise for More Lives Than One: 'An idiosyncratic blend of her journalistic voice ... With the skills of a writer who understands the proper balance in a novel between issue and narrative. ... This is her best novel ... [and] will find an answering echo in many readers' -- Elizabeth Buchan, The Times 'All the compassion characteristic of her writing in her previous novels and columns. ... This is a humane and perceptive novel' -- Woman & Home 'A good story, crisply and lightly told, that touches on many of teaching's current preoccupations and dilemmas and that grows in depth as it unfolds' -- The Times Educational Supplement 'The kind of book that you race to finish and then think about for a long time afterwards' -- The Lady 'Libby Purves' prose is clean, sharp and in touch with things that matter' -- Daily Express
