Reviews

"Across a Hundred Mountains is a beautifully rendered novel that maintains its power throughout....A breathtaking debut."

-- El Paso Times
"Elegantly written...a timely and riveting read."

-- People
"Grande's heartfelt [novel] addresses a worthy subject -- the desperation of illegal immigrants and the families they leave behind."

-- Entertainment Weekly
"Reyna Grande beguiles with the spare, unadorned prose of a fabulist, then stuns with emotional truths of shattering complexity....A tale full of memorable characters and even more memorable truths."

-- Javier Grillo-Marxuach, writer/producer of Lost and Boomtown
"Grande's deft portraiture endows even the smallest characters with grace."

-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
