Reviews

"A novel fairly brimming with inventive storytelling and comic brio." -- Booklist "Wonderfully seductive, one of those rare books you disappear into wholly. It's joyous, shamelessly funny, heartbreaking, and page after page it gives you what you didn't expect. This is a novel you'll want to hand deliver to a friend." -- David Long, author of The Inhabited World "Wonderfully engaging ... a great tribute to the power of education, strong women and the fine art of storytelling... an intricate dazzling pattern of history and imagination and truth." -- Jill McCorkle, author of Going Away Shoes "A heartfelt, redemptive, and irresistible novel. Stefaniak knows that every story is many stories, and she handles the complex tales of romance, family, race relations, and secrets with intelligence, grace, and tenderness." -- John Dufresne, author of Louisiana Power & Lig "Mary Helen Stefaniak is a born storyteller, with a fantastic gift for mingling the exotic and the ordinary, the comic and the heartrending. Her tale of drastic change coming to a small Southern town in the 1930s is filled with wild incidents, vivid characters, and a surprise at every turn-a delight to read." -- Lynne Sharon Schwartz, author of Ruined by Rea "This novel has strong, long legs. I hope it walks forever. Besides delivering suspenseful, eloquently detailed, non-sentimental prose, it spoons out a big dose of clarity that America needs." -- Clyde Edgerton, author of The Bible Salesman "So lush with detail that most scenes possess cinematic immediacy. Ultimately, reading about the triumphs and tragedies of the Cailiffs will make readers feel right at home amid Georgia pines and pecans." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune
