Reviews

This thoughtful tale, with its quietly poetic sensibility and timely themes, will resonate with those who are grieving the loss of loved ones because of the war. -- BULLETIN, March 1, 2010
*"Johnson's evocative yet starkly simple language powerfully shows the devastating effects of the war on one small community...the characters and circumstances are never anything less than rich and real."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Sweet, Hereafter (A Kirkus Best Book of 2010)
