I was charmed by the mixture of country lore and planning boards, New Age witches and old-fashioned family duties, and I was glad that I read on to the novel's appealing conclusion, drenched as it is with abiding devotion and love. For anyone interested in the way we live with the land, on the land today, this novel makes for a thoughtful evening or two of entertaining reading.
—Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered
A moving, life-affirming novel.
Bohjalian has a fine hand with light, weather, the color and curve of the land . . . [he] has constructed an arresting drama . . . as welcome as rain on a parched garden.
—New York Newsday
Bouyant and brilliant.
A bewitching tale from New England by a writer with a generous heart for his subjects, and respect for a landscape he clearly loves. Chris Bohjalian's voice is as steady and sure as Vermont rain.
—Cathie Pelletier, author of Candles on Bay Street
