Selected by Indie Booksellers for the July 2008 Indie Next List
“This story of a modern-day Hamlet, set in the northern woods of Wisconsin, reaches depths of emotion rare in any novel, much less a debut. Driven by powerful characters, particularly the mute Edgar and the amazing dog Almondine, this story of a family's destruction will resonate with readers long after completion.”
-- Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Indie Next List Highlights 2008
“This beautifully written family saga is set on a farm in Wisconsin, where Edgar - born mute - and his family raise prize dogs. This idyllic setting is upended when Edgar's Uncle Claude returns home and their world begins to fall apart. This is a coming-of-age story,a mystery, an epic novel, and, most of all, a story about the mystical relationship humans have with animals. You won't find a better read.”
-- Karen Schwettman, Fox Tale Books, New Durham, NH
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '09/Winter '10 Reading Group List
