What the critics say

"This is heartache for grown ups. The Weight of Love pulls you in and does not let go." Anne Enright "Beautiful and painful, exquisitely written, shot through with nostalgia for our earlier selves." Marian Keyes "Incredibly beautiful, aching; it feels like it's being whispered to me. The story unfolds so naturally in prose at once delicate and powerful, hypnotic. Gorgeous." Donal Ryan "An absorbing, cleverly structured, yet very human novel. It is hard to accept that it is Hilary Fannin's first" Roddy Doyle "An exquisitely written, deeply moving novel about the agonies of love, intimacy, and the harm we inflict upon one another in the name of romance." Louise O'Neill
