Praise for Fortune's Daughter
"An elegant and evocative novel that conjures up a kind of modern-day female mythology."--Chicago Tribune "By turns heartbreaking and heartwarming...[an] intimate, lovely novel, most of whose concerns swirl about the pain and joys of motherhood."--People "It is in its juxtaposition of the mythic, the apocalyptic, with the resolutely ordinary...that this novel finds its unique voice...Beautifully and matter-of-factly told."--The New York Times Book Review "One of the best novels to come out of the United States in a decade."--Annie Dillard
