Reviews

Intricately crafted, gorgeously rendered...full of heart, history, and enchantment.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Sisters of the Winter Wood
Rossner's debut weaves a richly detailed story of Jewish identity and sisterhood... emotionally charged, full of sharp historical detail and well-deployed Yiddish phrases...Ambitious and surprising.--Kirkus on The Sisters of the Winter Wood
With luscious and hypnotic prose, Rena Rossner tells a gripping, powerful story of family, sisterhood, and two young women trying to find their way in the world. I gulped it down!--Madeline Miller, author of The Song of Achilles and Circe on The Sisters of the Winter Wood
The Sisters of the Winter Wood is a graceful, poetic, deeply moving novel. A simply gorgeous book in every sense.--Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches on The Sisters of the Winter Wood
"Rossner creates a lush, immersive world through which the sprawling plot meanders, punctuated by moments of intense grief. The result is as lovely as it is heartbreaking."--Publishers Weekly
"The Light of the Midnight Stars is storytelling as spellcasting. Rossner has conjured something vivid and wild and true."--Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies
"Rossner's tale is as lyrical as the slow growth of roots, the quick dance of fire, and the stately procession of the stars. Blending folktale with history, hope with tragedy, its touch will linger on your heart long after you put it down."--Marie Brennan, author of The Lady Trent Memoirs
"A welcome tribute to Jewish resilience, imbued with elemental magic, folkloric traditions, and the transcendent power of love" --Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Wolf in the Whale
