Reviews

"ENEMY WOMEN deserves the Pulitzer Prize." -- Toronto Globe and Mail

"I loved...it provides the greatest suspense a story can offer: will someone we've come to love persevere and prosper?" -- Anna Quindlen

"...remarkable happens...it becomes inspired... Adair becomes a storyteller in order to survive. And so - triumphantly - does Paulette Jiles." -- New York Times Book Review (cover)

"This is a book with backbone, written with tough, haunting eloquence." -- New York Times

"Jiles paints the struggles of the era with the same intensity as Charles Frazier's 1997 bestseller Cold Mountain ..." -- People

"Sure to be touted as a new COLD MOUNTAIN...stark, unsentimental, yet touching novel will not suffer in comparison." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A remarkable debut... Splendid." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"...beautifully written passages...a real page-turner." -- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"...[G]ifted Missouri historian...acutely portrays Missouri's logistic misfortune as a hotbed of both Union and Confederate violence." -- Booklist

"Enemy Women is all strength and poetry, as are history's grandest ordinary women and extraordinary writing." -- Kaye Gibbons

"You know what it means when there is Paulette Jiles inside? Be smart. Open the book." -- Gordon Lish

"ENEMY WOMEN...has a Homeresque feel to it. Like something written by an old soul." -- Carolyn Chute

"Jiles has created an unsentimental yet tender world of destruction, despair, and hope that's a joy to inhabit." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Comparing Enemy Women to Cold Mountain doesn't quite do Jiles's novel justice." -- Washington Post
