In the aftermath of the First World War, the painter Walter Cox cherishes the place of his childhood to keep the pulse of his art alive. Haunted by his work, his young daughter Meredith has her own fight: to quell the power of her inner life.

Deeply affecting, shot through with a shimmering apprehension of the natural world, EARTH AND HEAVEN is about life's fragility, and the power of love and painting to disturb, renew and reveal us to ourselves.

Press Reviews

  • 'A nicely-turned, old-fashioned narrative. In an evocative period piece, the smell of Woodbines and turps curls up from the page' The Independent
  • The Times
    Beautiful... Clever, compelling
  • Woman and Home
    A compassionate account of the life of an artist, particularly strong in its evocation of post-war London and the countryside of Kent
  • '...a painterly sensibility...' Times
  • Ms London
    Memorable, poetic... Wonderfully evocative writing - you can almost smell the hop vines as you read
  • 'Gee's subtle and sensitive romance evokes the inter-war years, a period that already feels impossibly far away' The Mail on Sunday
  • 'So atmospherically written, you feel you're living through a Kentish summer' Northern Echo
  • TLS
    Descriptive brilliance... Its emotional tenor remains buoyant and unfaltering from the first page to the last
