Reviews

"MacDonald skillfully shifts the story backward and forward in time, giving it a mythic quality that allows dark, half-buried secrets to be gracefully and chillingly revealed" * New York Times * "A whopper of a first novel... No fragmentation or contrived narrative devices confuse this hefty and engrossing tale" * Guardian * "Stunning....The story is riveting, the characters achingly human, and the writing will take your breath away....[MacDonald] has leapt into the first rank of fiction writers" * Toronto Star *
