Shirley Newhook (The Telegram, St. John’s) called it: “A summer read you can’t put down.”
Tina Chaulk (author of This Much is True) said, “You will be swept away.”
Joan Clark (author of An Audience of Chairs) called it: “A finely nuanced novel that is a pleasure to read.”
Joan Sullivan (The Telegram, St. John’s) said: “The detailed descriptions of so many settings, including Coney Island in July 1928, or the St. John’s airport in March 1983, continuously and vividly bring the story alive. This is a novel both meaty and delicate; you can dig right into it, and still find yourself savouring turns of plot, turns of phrase.”
