“Walking the Lights is a finely crafted and captivating story of a young woman’s self discovery and her struggles with the damaging temptations of young adulthood, and an insightful painting of Glasgow in the 90s and its social complications.”
“Walking the Lights has been shortlisted for Not the Booker Prize 2016 and this is very well deserved. All in all, a very thoughtful novel that will quietly but effectively get under your skin.”: http://www.lothianlife.co.uk/2016/09/walking-the-lights-deborah-andrews/
