Praise

“An absolutely wonderful story. Dawn Clifton Tripp has created a place that is as memorable to me as Charles Frazier’s Smoky Mountains or Norman Maclean’s Montana, and filled it with characters as lifelike as any I’ve encountered in contemporary American fiction.”
Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances and Where the Rivers Flow North

“Tripp writes vivid, precise, intense prose that opens a window on a particular place and time, a family and love story, with complex views that promise to delight and move us. In The Season of Open Water she delivers on that promise, and keeps surprising us with more.”
Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek and Brave Enemies

“The story of a woman caught between the brother who completes her and the man she loves, The Season of Open Water is a stunning, taut, richly textured novel. Tripp possesses a genius for the telling detail, and her characters are so intimately drawn that we can almost see their breath rise up off the page.”
Alison Smith, author of Name All the Animals


Praise for Moon Tide

“A shimmering work, an audacious debut, a gem.”
Edna O’Brien

“A dream of a book–hypnotic, poetic, transporting the reader through time and space . . . Moon Tide is the thinking woman’s beach book.”
The Charlotte Observer

“Moon Tide is a haunting meditation–reminiscent of Louise Erdrich–on family, place, love, mourning, and memory. . . . It feels like a dream.”
Haven Kimmel, author of A Girl Named Zippy
