"Taylor deftly weaves a tale that quickly pulls you in wondering what will become of [Lily and Violet Morgan] and the lies they've propped up around themselves to make it all work. Will their relationship survive? And if the truth were to come out, what would their husbands, family and the townsfolk think?...You won't be disappointed with Taylor's newest novel."
--A New Day

"A story of love that rises from the depths to create happiness in an unforgiving world...A good read."
--Journey of a Bookseller

"Taylor explores complicated issues with excellent prose and compelling characters. Her excavation of the religious and political context in this place and time is fascinating. She achieves depth and breadth, and tells a great story, too."
--The Collagist

"In All Waiting is Long, Taylor once again performs the magic trick of making us fall in love with characters who live in her finely drawn, unforgiving past, and who grapple with the indelible consequences of honor and dishonor, hope and disappointment, and the mystifying nature of tragedy and love. I read this book in two sittings, flying through the pages, seduced."
--Robin Oliveira, author of I Always Loved You

"A page turner . . . Taylor very skillfully blends all the many forces determining life in the 1930s into a novel of tremendous strength and compulsive readability."
--The Cyberlibrarian

Praise for Barbara J. Taylor:

"A profound story of how one unforeseen event may tear a family apart, but another can just as unexpectedly bring them back together again."
--Publishers Weekly on Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night
