"...a great tale [that] builds to an exciting and violent ending, one that surprises and yet seems to fit."
"... buoyant and moving ....beautifully balanced between magical and realist fiction... closer in tone and voice to Alice Sebold's 'The Lovely Bones' or Richard Ford's Frank Bascombe trilogy."
-Atlanta Journal Constitution
