The BookViral Review:

Three women, three times, three places. All linked by a doll called Sofina and the scene is set for what proves to be an exceptional novel from Elizabeth Pulford

Combining masterful writing, luminous characterization, narrative intelligence and a superb enveloping plot The Stitching of Sofina’s cumulative emotional power takes readers by surprise, capturing us unawares in its ability to move us as deeply as it does.

The twin themes of The Stitching of Sofina are the strength of familial bonds, especially the bond of love, and the gift of legacy that the dying make to the living, with something fierce, noble and deeply affecting in Pulford’s prose.

She doesn’t try to force Yana’s, Eleanora-Rose’s and Anna’s stories to parallel one another. It’s more like a meditation on separate lives linked by a mystery that creates a powerful mosaic of images that gradually resolves itself into a haunting tale of tragedy and loss. And on this level, The Stitching of Sofina is less about a story or a plot than it is about perception, prejudices and change.

She asks what does it means to be born as a woman, or a man? To be born at one time instead of another? To be born into wealth, or into poverty, or into the traditions of a particular nation. And by fracturing her timeline Pulford isolates key moments in the lives of her characters so that they have to stand alone. Reminding us that so much of what makes us ourselves is implanted at an early age, and is hard to break free from.

An accomplished novel that grips us, moves us and entertains us. The Stitching of Sofina is unreservedly recommended.

Authors and The Great Romantics

Have you ever come home to a hot bath strewn with rose petals and filled with bubbles, in a bathroom bedecked with scented candles and an ice cold glass of champagne fizzing invitingly on the side. If not you might be thinking poor me but you might want to think again!
