Louise Couper

 What the critics said:


●  A real talent as a story teller. Philippa's Farm is a triumph.    

Sean Rafferty, BBC


●  Hooks you right from the beginning: a story with charm, wit and pleasure - a book to curl up with and enjoy.

Sean McCann, The Evening Press


●  Well written, witty and sad.

Gay Byrne, GB Show

Books Ireland


●  A welcome addition to the genre.  

The Irish Times


●  "On the publication of Philippa's Farm, Louise Couper established herself as a story-telling force to be reckoned with. Philippa's Folly and Philippa's Flight follow the eponymous heroine on an energetic journey of self-discovery and growth. Combining humour, warmth, insight and a dose of good old-fashioned romance, these beguiling tales are testimony to Couper's notable writing talent."   

Waterstone's Guide to Irish Books  


●  "Fine and subtle story-telling”

The Examiner


●  "Amusing and touching, comic and tragic by turns and … very well written.”

Irish Farmer’s Journal


●  "An intelligent, moody heroine who escapes academe in Dublin and eventually succumbs to an overseas romance.  The darkness which follows does full justice to the complexities of her character.”

In Dublin: Critic’s Pick


●  "Philippa’s Flight is your best book yet _ enjoyed all the others but this has everything…  It’s a breath of fresh air.”

Valerie Cox, East Coast Radio


●  "A great read.  I must say the powers of description in this book are incredible…  It’s a book you won’t put down once you start.”

Don Delaney, Radio 3


●  "You really get into the characters and want to know what happens to them.”
