Reviews

"A splendid novel, rendering a past era of America with resonant clarity and unfolding an achingly human story. Fisher also has a distinctively lovely narrative voice. This is a very impressive debut from a writer I will be delighted to follow in the years to come."
-Robert Olen Butler, author of Had a Good Time

"A gorgeous and mesmerizing story of a journey. Fisher provides both the historical context and the perfect detail with equal grace. She deals in big emotions, big adventures, big landscapes, and human-size people. This is a remarkable, remarkable book and I loved every word of it."
-Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club

"On every page of A Sudden Country, Karen Fisher finds a way to astonish- with her extraordinary command of period details, with her profound insights into love-tormented hearts and minds, with her style, which is both lyrical and economical. This is a magnificent debut."
-Larry Watson, author of Orchard and Montana 1948

"A Sudden Country will take you to the frontiers of your heart. Let Karen Fisher's story remind you of what we all know most deeply: Life itself-the will to survive-depends on love."
-Thomas Eidson, author of The Missing
