The tiny touches of magic realism, fantasy, and science fiction are intriguing elements, but the strength of Morgan's powerful story is her depiction of this time and place and the everyday struggles of determined women. A great choice for readers who enjoy novels by Alice Hoffman and Barbara Kingsolver
Magic infuses the story . . . it sings with sensory detail . . . a lush, loving look at everyday lives of women
I'm still feeling a little bowled over by how much I liked this book . . . Completely engrossing and hard to put down
A compelling, relationship-driven family drama with speculative elements and plenty of mystery, this is a page turner that you won't be able to put down . . . I can hardly wait for Louisa Morgan's next book, and I'll be the first person in line to read it!
An irresistible blend of magic and historical fantasy
