Reviews

"Though the moment on which The Ghost of Milagro Creek turns happens fairly early on, we'd rather not spoil it, mostly because Sumner so immediately brings her characters to life that when it happens, it's devastating . . . [Ghost of Milagro Creek] simmers with metaphysical tension." --Time Out Chicago

"The reader falls through layers of time into countless stories of danger, love -- a love strong enough to inspire murder -- the pressures of community and blood boiling. . . You remember Willa Cather's "O Pioneers!" and Edith Wharton's "Ethan Frome" -- books set in wildly different landscapes in which true love becomes a death cage. "Tu eres mi vida," one of the sons tells the girl. Oh, how you wish he hadn't." --Los Angeles Times
--Atlanta Journal Constitution
"Ghost of Milagro Creek shimmers with the light and landscape of New Mexico, and sparkles with the uniquely bleak, dark humor that has allowed generations of Native Americans to survive the worst kind of well-intentioned ethnocide by the U.S. government. The multifaceted narrative moves forward and backward in time until a picture emerges -- one strand at a time, much like the basket-weaving Ignacia's tribe is known -- of a small community whose broken world might finally have a chance at healing, if they can reclaim their once powerful medicine, hidden in plain sight." --Atlanta Journal Constitution
--Time Out Chicago
