"I was immediately drawn into the story which is told in alternating time periods jumping back and forth between past and present. " - Teresa's Reading Corner
"I would highly recommend The Firebird if you are looking for a historical fiction novel written with a beautiful story and strong characters. The Firebird will sweep you up in time, and as a reader, you will travel from past to present in settings such as England, Scotland, Ireland and Russia. I definitely plan to read more of Kearsley's books and am fortunate to have several to choose from. " - Redlady's Reading Room

"Authentic historic detail, a touch of the paranormal, and romance come together with a synergistic effect in versatile Kearsley's (The Rose Garden, 2011) lovely and memorable novel. STARRED Review" - Booklist

"The Firebird is a beautifully written story with characters that practically leap off the pages, a story that alternately broke my heart and healed it, and a pair of romances (or a trio, more accurately) that made me fall in love. This book made me laugh, made me cry (I seriously bawled happy tears through the last 30 or so pages), and made me certain that Susanna Kearsley has a talent like no other." - Ramblings of a Daydreamer
"The blend of the present and the past is very well done and should delight fans of historical fiction." - Fiction Addiction
