"This earnest tale will stay with readers."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"A page-turner with heart and soul...Like all of Barry's best fiction, it examines life from an angle that makes it look as fresh as a new moon."

-- " The Times (London)"

"Barry knows that it is too much to look for redemption in a story like Winona's, but in his telling he shows that love offers at least a spark of hope."

-- "Financial Times (London)"

"The reader may be grateful for...the endearing, confiding voice of Winona...It's her touchingly resilient spirit that gives the book its beating heart."

-- "Irish Times (Dublin)"

"His work reminds us how much we need these rare gifts of the natural storyteller, for reckoning with our past and present."

-- "The Guardian (London)"

"A poetic sensibility runs through this luminous novel...Highly recommended."

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

"This beautifully rendered historical...is equal parts thrilling and meditative."

-- "Booklist"
