Reviews

"Powerful...A work of surpassing thematic seriousness and fictive artistry. In all respects, Mason's Retreat is exemplary." --The Washington Post Book World

"Stately, absorbing...Mr. Tilghman writes [with] authoritative elegance....His book, so rooted in the idea of coming home, makes one realize all over again that here on Earth there is no such place." --Thomas Mallon, The New York Times Book Review

"Comes close to pure, exhilarating perfection...Tilghman gives us richly drawn characters, shimmering detail, and an irresistibly moving theme---all presented in a graceful and powerful style." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Rich...bewitching...unforgettably rendered...The pieces in Tilghman's kaleidoscope [are] sharp, faceted, and gleaming." --Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times

"Beautifully written...fully imagined...Few first novels are narrated with the clarity, economy, and masterful assurance Tilghman brings to this remarkably moving and persuasive tale." --Entertainment Weekly
