Critical Praise

"Haunting.... A finely woven, almost delicate, tapestry....Styron's finest achievement is her ability to glide seamlessly between the dialect of St. Clair and the cultured language of Connecticut as she pieces together the fragments of each of these women's lives." —Amy Ephron, Los Angeles Times

"Perfect observations leap off the page.... The deftness of the local color and the haunting details of never-to-be-outgrown pain are promises of good things to come for Alexandra Styron." —Rosellen Brown, New Leader

"A virtuoso performance, a remarkably perceptive and finely tuned story that addresses the tough questions of love, loss, and redemption with deadly accuracy tempered by gentle humor." —Mary Garrett, BookPage
