Reviews

"In her seventh novel, The Cage-maker, Nicole Seitz has crafted one of the most original and fascinating stories I've read in ages. With elaborate settings, mysterious characters, impressive illustrations, and tons of suspense, Seitz has delivered a captivating time-slip novel that escapes the confines of genre and enters that sacred space of darn-good storytelling."--Julie Cantrell, New York Times and USA Today bestselling novelist of The Feathered Bone
"Moving fluidly between both literary forms and time periods, and in prose as gauzy and beautiful as its illustrations, Nicole Seitz's The Cage-maker is, like the birdcage at the novel's heart, something both timeless and completely new. This gorgeous and deeply moving novel is part tomorrow's blog post, part Balzac, reborn in the deep South."--Mark Powell, author of Small Treasons and The Sheltering
"Nicole Seitz's The Cage-maker takes us on an always riveting journey through the lives of a family a century ago. Using their letters we begin to understand the complications of both their lives and their times. She has given us a wonderful story, the gift of a worthy tale for sure."--Robert Hicks, author of The Widow of the South and The Orphan Mother
