'Mysterious, gritty and a bit mystical, Markert's entertaining new novel inspires the question of "What if?" Many characters are nicely multilayered, providing a good balance of intrigue and realism. The fascinating glimpse into the process of distilling bourbon --- and the effect of the Prohibition on Kentucky and its bourbon families --- adds another layer to the story . . .'--RT Book Reviews, 3 stars
"Distinguished by complex ideas and a foreboding tone, Markert's (A White Wind Blew) enthralling novel captures a dark time and a people desperate for hope."--Library Journal
