Reviews

"Do you believe what you see with your eyes or what you see with your heart? That question, raised by Simonds' layered and nuanced account of an extraordinary life, will provoke thought in skeptics and believers alike." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Against the backdrop of almost a century of Canadian, Mexican, and American history, Simonds explores the sometimes unknown, astonishing, and enduring-against-all-odds connections between siblings, parents, and children that span generations and the globe." -- Booklist

"Real people and events are woven into this work of fiction, enhancing its intrigue and authenticity without removing the spotlight from Cass. Cass's obsession with scientific experimentation and examination . . . infuses the story with detail, insight, and depth." -- Foreword Reviews

"Artful and allusive." -- Quill & Quire

"A silk scarf of a novel, which catches on far-flung places and deep heartaches, and gathers them into an old woman's gnarled and feisty memory. Merilyn Simonds shows how mysterious we remain to ourselves and to each other after even a century of living." -- Elizabeth Hay, author of Giller Prize-winning Late Nights on Air
