Praise for Yours, Jean

"Martin creates a subtle and intricate portrait of
small-town mores and of the after echoes and reverberations, for those who've
witnessed it, of sudden, shocking violence." --Kirkus Reviews

"Based on the 1952 murder of Georgine Lyons, Martin's
latest novel explores the crime and its repercussions. ... Each of those
affected narrates her or his own perspective on the story, and the ensemble
paints a rich picture of a crime, societal expectations, and the painful echoes
in a small town that feels universal." --Booklist

"Like his highly acclaimed The Bright
, Lee Martin's latest novel, Yours, Jean,
is based on a true crime. And, like that earlier narrative, a finalist for the
2006 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, the interplay of rich details and raw emotions
that Martin so masterfully unfolds in his latest novel makes you ache for the
lonely men and women he tenderly brings to life in this powerful story about a
murder and the lasting impact it has on a close-knit community." --Linda Kass, Gramercy Books

"Fantastic...Martin expertly weaves one storyline with
another, and despite the many threads and characters, all remains clear. I read
it in one sitting!...Highly recommended reading!" --Defrosting Cold Cases
