Reviews

“A rich historical portrait of the region, Morley’s love story is for fans of photography and history buffs looking for novels set in the WPA era."
*Library Journal*

“A novel not to be missed. Morley explores, with the sensuality and insight, the violence resulting from intolerance, ignorance and preconceived ideas. The Last Blue poses the question of morality and justice through a captivating love story.”

 
*The Independent*

“Morley has constructed a memorable and moving narrative, complicated by the troubles of the past and shadowed by the risk of betrayal, which probes what it means to truly be seen and understood for oneself.”
*Booklist*

“I devoured it in gulps, desperate to find out what happens yet also enjoying Morley’s lyrical prose and descriptions of Appalachia.”
*The Koala Mom*

"The writing, oh, man, the writing! There are some amazing scenes throughout the book that really took me from the highest highs to the lowest lows and back again! I loved how much of a ride this book was! A mark of a good book for me is when I can't stop thinking about the story or the characters after I close the pages and these characters and their story are very much stuck to me!"
*A Bookish Affair*

"A compelling tale of survival, reinvention, and hope.  Vivid and poignant."
*The Boston Globe (Praise for Isla Morley)*

"Intense and ambitious.  Exquisitely detailed."
*Los Angeles Magazine (Praise for Isla Morley)*

"An arresting, heart-wrenching novel. . . . a phenomenal debut."
*The San Diego Union Tribune (Praise for Isla Morley)*

"Morley is a stunning storyteller."
*The Daily Beast (Praise for Isla Morley)*
