Reviews

" Dense and powerful... Tiny jewels that, gathered together, create a stunning effect of pure, dazzling light."
" Written with ease and empathy, this is both about maintaining a household in Alaska and about being at home in the world."
" Lende offers touching stories about neighbors with whom she shares wedding celebrations, potluck dinners, tears for missing fishermen-- all the joys and sorrows of family life in a remote town."
" Who knew a writer could find so much human drama, simple pleasure and thorny issues in such a remote place? If you like the stories on "Prairie Home Companion" or "Northern Exposure," you'll love some real news from small-town Alaska."
" Part Annie Dillard, part Anne Lamott... NPR commentator Heather Lende... subtly remind[s] readers to embrace each day, each opportunity, each life that touches our own and to note the beauty of it all."
