"When I finally closed the last page of this slim volume it was
with the realization that I'd just finished one of those uncommon
perfect books that come along all too rarely in a reader's
life."--Charles DeLint, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science

"Poignant and heartbreaking, eloquent and frightening, impeccably rendered, it's a fable that reminds us how our lives are shaped by childhood experiences, what we gain from them and the price we pay."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
