"Brilliant. . . . A wonderfully courageous second novel." -Newsday "Remarkable. . . . A historically credible account of the period just after America entered the First World War, when 'the Spanish Lady' laid waste to Boston and much of the rest of the country." -Salon "Her second novel is of a piece with [Bee Season] in its invention and stylistic skill. . . . A warmhearted, unusual and intelligent consideration of a world about which few people know." -San Francisco Chronicle "An engrossing look at how one young woman grows through personal losses at a time when so many lost so much." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
