Reviews

It's one of the warmest, most quietly rousing books that I know; a clear-eyed salute to the resilience of the human spirit and the innate hardiness of the immigrants who came across the ocean to start afresh in the golden west -- Xan Brooks * Guardian *
Willa Cather was a wordsmith of enormous talent -- Robert Slayton * Los Angeles Review of Books *
Her novels stick in the reader's mind as flickering memories of places we may never have seen with our own eyes -- Jane Smiley * The Paris Review *
