Reviews

"Lauren Wolk has woven a mesmerizing, poignant tale--a story laced with grit and pluck about having the courage to carve out one's own life. Brilliant." -Lynda Mullaly Hunt, bestselling author of Shouting at the Rain and Fish in a Tree

β˜… "[A] magnificently related story of the wide arc of responsibility, acceptance, and, ultimately, connectedness.... A luscious, shivery delight." -Kirkus, starred review

β˜… "Fans of Wolk's previous novels, including the Newbery Honor book Wolf Hollow, will once again relish the author's evocative and touching language and her gift for revisiting history through the lens of fulsome and fascinating characters. In this complex, memorable novel, Wolk explores themes of social responsibility, modern versus traditional medicine, biological versus chosen family and more." -BookPage, starred review

β˜… "Complex and fiercely loving, Ellie is a girl any reader would be proud to have as a friend.... Woven with music, puppies, and healing, Wolk's beautiful storytelling turns this historical tale of family and survival into a captivating saga." -Booklist, starred review

β˜… "A girl realizes her standout gifts as a healer in this exquisitely layered historical novel set in Depression-era Maine.... Via strongly sketched cabin-life cadences and memorable, empathic characterizations--including, perhaps most vividly, of the wilderness itself--Newbery Honoree Wolk builds a powerful, well-paced portrait of interconnectedness, work and learning, and strength in a time of crisis." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A timely novel about surviving economic crisis but not today's: Wolk's tale is set in the Maine woods during the Great Depression. Soothing and exquisitely written." -People

"Every child learns at school about the dislocation of families during the Great Depression. Novelist Lauren Wolk brings readers into one such stricken household in Echo Mountain, a lyrical and affecting story.... Amid our own dislocations with the coronavirus, this is a book that will soothe readers like a healing balm." -The Wall Street Journal
