* The importance of ingenuity, faith, confidence, and the willingness to dream shine through in a rich story threaded with traditional folk tales, which offers realistic dilemmas and a vibrant setting and cast.-- "Publishers Weekly, STARRED"
*"This vividly imagined first-person narrative features a number of distinct characters within an unusual historical setting...and a note on the Colorado coal camps and the author's research adds dimension to this multi-dimensional first novel."-- "Booklist, STARRED"
I adored this beautiful debut novel about a spunky Bohemian immigrant girl who dares to realize her family's American dream through creativity and hard work. The loveable characters, vivid setting, and magical folktales completely drew me into Katerina's world, and I didn't want to leave.--Laura Resau, author of Star in the Forest and Red Glass "Booklist, STARRED"
Historical fiction with a touch of whimsy and romance.--Laura Resau, author of Star in the Forest and Red Glass "School Library Journal"
