Reviews

"A spellbinding tale of war, love and survival . . . storytelling at its best."--Associated Press

"A deeply moving, relevant novel . . . What a stirring tribute to the Resistance this novel is; along with a heartfelt salute to the ordinary women and even girls who sprinkled sand in the gears of Hitler's army, fighting back in innumerable subtle ways against the Occupation."--The Washington Post

"[Bobbie Ann Mason] writes with care and grace, creating fully developed, complicated characters that readers will care for and remember long after finishing the book."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Ushering her readers back and forth across the decades, [Mason] perfectly weaves history with fiction. . . . [A] near-perfect war story."--USA Today

"[An] impressive, impassioned new novel. The unforgettable story . . . is a gripping tale of redemption."--The Miami Herald
