Reviews

"[A] compelling, tautly rigged tale." - "Kirkus Reviews", starred review
"[A] compelling, taughtly rigged tale."
"A vivid historical tale within the framework of a compelling modern story."
"A riveting independent read."
"Cooper's deep, organic interweaving of themes of memory and heritage, dream and bereavement, and her persistent imagery of the sea and sailing make this a powerful, demanding novel...It rewards rereading and reminds us that in historical fiction, ordinary words, intently arranged and deliberately paced, can offer an intense vision and emotional transport that constitute a voyage of their own."
"Cooper, a Newbery medalist, has interwoven history and fantasy before...but nowhere, I think, has she done it more hauntingly or gracefully than in this loving tribute to Nelson...."
