Reviews

A story libretto that commands attention from the opening scene. Celt has crafted a modern fairy tale that had me up from my chair in standing ovation.--Sarah McCoy, New York Times and international best-selling author of The Mapmaker's Children
[A] lyrical debut novel about the perplexing riddle of inheritance.--Sarah Meyer
A beautifully written exploration of the myths and the realities that bind families together that will leave readers eagerly awaiting Celt's next novel.
Brimming with sad, delicious folklore and echoing with the voices of five generations of mothers and daughters in a family shaped by music as much as by tragedy, Celt's debut is enchanting.--Sarah Cornwell, author of What I Had Before I Had You
In this novel, voice and music and history and storytelling and mythmaking and motherhood and protection of the self are in many ways the same: Living animals, changeable and complex, adaptive and perilous and endlessly powerful.... Here is one you should not miss, a gratifying feast in lush, lyrical, and full-throated form.--Carmen Maria Machado
The journey through song and myth, the cost of motherhood and the price of passion... will resonate long after the last page.--Jenn Fields
Celt's family saga steeped in folklore and vibrating with music is as much about the power of storytelling as the fraught relationships between mothers and daughters.... A haunting novel with real emotional depth, Celt's psychologically nuanced debut continues to resonate long after the last page has been turned.
