Praise for Landed Lyrical and melancholic . . . Rhapsodic in its rural devotion and deftly empathetic in its portrait of Owen . . . Lovingly crafted. --Kirkus Reviews This impressive, skillful novel portrays love and devotion in a unique, haunting way. --Publishers Weekly Like Cormac McCarthy's The Road without the apocalypse, this story will seize readers' hearts and have them rooting for the survival of a father and his children on the run. Pears has produced another strong, sympathetic winner. --Library Journal
