Reviews

" A sensitive rendering of one of the century's great love stories."--Mirabella

" I am truly in love with this book. Schiff's sentences are magnificent, deceptively complex, full of insight and fact and distance and wry humor, so that every page is a kind of mini feast."--Anita Shreve

" An absorbing story, illumined by Schiff's flair for the succinct insight."
--The New York Times Book Review

" Véra is an astonishingly fine book--a tale told with wit and elegance, a tale that succeeds in encompassing both the intimacy of a marriage and the sweep of history. I found it a great pleasure to read. And I'm in awe of Stacy Schiff's talent."--Jonathan Harr
