Reviews

Downing is better at writing about Shakers than Hawthorne or Melville . . . The feeling for the community and its members ring true. --New York Times Book Review

Perfect Agreement is as artfully and solidly constructed as a Shaker table . . . Exquisite. --Newsday

A novel of compassion and wit . . . Downing combines one man's tale of loss and acceptance, the lost rhythms of the Shaker world, and the delights of the English language. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
