Reviews

Praise for Kiana Davenport's Song of the Exile

"Reading this novel is an overwhelming experience. . . . Davenport's prose is sharp and shining as a sword, yet her sense of poetry and love of nature permeate each line."
-Isabel Allende

"Deeply moving . . . You can't read Kiana Davenport without being transformed."
-Alice Walker

"What separates [Song of the Exile] from its genre . . . is its intensity of feeling, its body of sensuous detail present on every one of its pages, and its dedication to a level of writing very few bestsellers possess."
-Norman Mailer

"Song of the Exile transports the reader into an often-magical world by the power of its story. Its language is at times a song, and sometimes a cry in the dark. . . . Davenport's imagination and vision will haunt you for a long time."
-Chicago Tribune
