“Cool, clear, gem-like precision . . . a beautifully written and thought-provoking book.”—Library Journal

“The depth and subtlety of this document casts a spell upon the reader, bringing words to an ancient silence. Kate Horsley’s moving tale both embodies and confirms the power of language.”—Branches of Light

“The story reads so convincingly as a personal journal that one may forget that it is, in fact, a work of fiction.”—NAPRA Review

“This powerful little book is not for lightweight, fainthearted, or doctrinaire readers, but it will be deeply satisfying for many. It can be read simply as a compelling piece of historical fiction or as an insightful meditation on the nature and roots of sectarian conflict.”—School Library Journal

“As a slant of sunlight illuminates jewels long buried, Kate Horsley’s novel brings words to an ancient silence and a living, vivid presence to people who lived in that time of great changes and estrangements we call the Dark Ages.”—Ursula K. Le Guin

“An exquisite historial novel. The poetry of the language is stunning.”—Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon
