Reviews

The characters in this engrossing novel are created in luminous and memorable detail. Just as the pacing is perfect, so too are the tact and care with which each scene is made. Kirstin Valdez Quade, by concentrating on the truth of small moments, has brought a whole world into focus.--Colm Tóibín, author of House of Names
The Five Wounds is brilliant! The story is bountiful and so incredibly well crafted--a beautiful braid of the life cycle within a family. It captures both the strength and fragility of relationships and existence and the resilience and great power of love and belief. It is a novel about faith in the largest sense of the word. Each page is packed with detail and the most beautiful language--and images and characters that will remain part of our lives.--A. M. Homes, author of May We Be Forgiven
